Nonetto (An Impression Of The Whole Of Brazil) - Heitor Villa-Lobos

Nonetto (An Impression Of The Whole Of Brazil)
Released 18/08/08. Precocious and full of wonderment, the Nonetto and Quatuor, written by Villa-Lobos in 1924 and 1921 respectively, are surely two of the unsung minor masterpieces of the early 20th Century. In its fusion of pagan rhythms and chanting with the brittle harmonies of the avant garde, Nonetto brings to mind Stravinsky's Les Noces and Prokofiev's Scythian Suite. Yet the piece is also characterised by a freewheeling playfulness more suggestive of jazz and folk music than the concert hall. Those coming at the piece from a rock perspective are also likely to hear an uncanny foreshadowing of the more considered music of Frank Zappa. Quatuor (for flute, harp, celesta, alto saxaphone and women¹s voices) is a thoroughly magical work also; a combination of dense, even knotty, harmonies and unashamed sensuality: Heitor Villa-Lobos is one of the best-kept secrets in music. This edition restores to print two historic performances of the Nonetto and Quatuor from 1941 and 1957 combining them with a set of exquisite Villa-Lobos guitar works performed by the great masters Andrés Segovia, Julian Bream and Laurindo Almeida.
