Hommage à Heitor Villa-Lobos

Here is a concert, from August 30, 1954, with the Orchestre National de la Radio-Television Francaise conducted by Villa-Lobos. The first work is Dawn in a Tropical Rain Forest (Alvorada Na Floresta Tropical). You can listen to the first bit for free, but it will cost 4 Euros to download the whole concert. That includes a second half, featuring Magda Tagliaferro playing the piano, I believe in Bachianas Brasileiras no. 3, though it might be Momoprecoce. Enjoy!


  1. Thank you so much, Dean! There's a wonderful recording of Rudá there as well (and Tagliaferro performed Momoprecoce).

  2. Btw, have you seen that they have a recording of the 10th symphony too?
