Villa-Lobos: Sua Obra, 4th ed.

This is exciting: the 4th edition of Villa-Lobos: Sua Obra, the catalogue of Villa-Lobos's complete works, published in 2022 by the Museu Villa-Lobos in Rio de Janeiro.

You can download the catalogue in PDF format at the MVL website here. This is obviously the result of significant scholarship. Though much exaggerated over the years, this is still a very large, and quite a chaotic body of work.

I'm looking forward to digging in to this, but one of the first things that struck me is how good this book looks. That's partly due to Marcelo Rodolfo's excellent choice of photos. Once again the Museu Villa-Lobos has done right by the maestro!
