Description: For all his world-renowned depth of knowledge of Brazilian folk and popular melody, his songs, the most direct connection to that source of folk melos, are hardly ever recorded. This reissue of a 35-year-old French record takes care of that oversight with 114 minutes of songs based mostly on collected, authentic folk-songs or composed in their style (easily done with Villa-Lobos' intimate knowledge of the genre); the violin/voice suite (again folk-songs, but with a vocalise between them) is particularly unusual and arresting. No texts. Anna Maria Bondi (soprano), Les Solistes de Paris; Henri-Claude Fantapié (Bachiana), Raymond d'Arco (violin), Françoise Petit (piano). 1971 and 1972 recordings. Original Societé Française de Productions Phonographiques release.
