5.0 out of 5 stars O verdadeiro acordo... 24 Sep 2009
By John Ferngrove TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
... is evidently Portuguese for 'the real deal' according to some Google translation site. A couple of months back I was pleased to see that Naxos had released a new recording of the complete Bachianas Brasilieras, by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra under Kenneth Schermerhorn, Villa-Lobos: Bachianas Brasileiras (Complete). At last I would be able to make full acquaintance with these works that I had only hitherto known through beguiling fragments. I purchased the set forthwith, and sure enough experienced the full glory of these wondrous works but, as I state in my review for that set, I did have the suspicion that better performances might be possible. Upon posting that review I did some checking and found that indeed, there was an alternative version, this one, and at an impossibly generous price, and including some very tempting extras. And I was right. This is the real deal, and the version to go for, being far more nuanced and layered than the Naxos set, which now sounds, for the most part, rather sadly ponderous and clumsy in comparison. This set does justice to the great wealth of detail that the Nashvilles just buried with over-enthusiasm and, most of all, it actually sounds unmistakably Brazilian, perhaps something to do with the fact that it's a Brazilian at the helm of the London Phil. I'm now going to have to amend my review for the Naxos set and downgrade it from the five stars that I first gave it, simply for making these treasures available.

How to describe Villa Lobos for those unfamiliar with him? Brazil's greatest composer, who worked between the 20's and the 50's.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the Spirit of Villa-Lobos 23 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
Although internationally famous during his lifetime, Villa-Lobos had been put aside for many years, i.e., had been almost excluded of the musical canon until the recent sudden emergence of Dudamel reintroduced his work in the concert halls. This cycle of the Bachianas Brasileiras is a fortunate exception as it was enregistered in the Seventies.

It would be unjust to choose some pieces as the the most accurate or well played. Enrique Bátiz proved himself a resorceful conductor of Villa-Lobos and Barbara Hendricks did her best to achieve the natural music of the Portuguese language in her singing of the Bachianas 4 and 5.

The quality which renders these performances outstanding, in my opinion, is that they succeded in finding the correct balance between the regional and the universal elements in Villa-Lobos. For Villa-Lobos' creative activity was, first of all, a lifelong search for the authentic musical soul of Brazil, which is much more than most people, including the Brazilians themselves, will ever be presented with. But at the same time Villa-Lobos suffered from that "anxiety of influence" as he could not but participate in the western musical canon.

In a period of the history of the classical music characterized by discovery and innovation, Villa-Lobos found his way not by refusing (or pretending to refuse) the tradition, but by working out an original musical idea, which could reflect his temperament, his passion, the musical character of his country (as he saw it) and of his epoch, and the sense of transcendence which is the "conditio sine qua non" of the classical music, its "raison d'être".

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Value Set 1 Mar 2011
By Mr. A. R. Boyes TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
John Ferngrove's excellent review tells you nearly all of what you need to know about this set. The most important thing to note is that it offers incredible value for money that beats all competition. The sound engineering is excellent and many of the performances are first rate.

If you want the full set of Bachianas then this is the obvious choice though the BIS recordings coupled with the remarkable Choros is probably the best if you want both sets: that's worth having for the Choros alone and you get the guitar preludes too. I share John Ferngrove's enthusiasm for Villa-Lobos's music and for those only familiar with the Bachianas I can heartily recommend the Choros series as well as his highly underrated string quartets and symphonies - an embarrassment of riches!

As for this set, the bonuses are great too - both Momoprocece and the Guitar Concerto receive excellent performances and are substantial works.

Fine as the performances of the Bachianas are overall, I would say that I don't think these are quite the definitive performances. I do find that Enrique Batiz does rush some of the pieces and the some of the subtleties of the bluesy second are missed. Basically, it lacks atmosphere at times with the richer and sometimes melancholic elements being passed over a little too quickly. Even so, for the full set it is excellent overall and a steal at this price. Highly recommended.

I had not known any Villa-Lobos until I heard BB number 5 at the King's Place. Needless to say, I bought these recordings the following day. I very recommend them.
