Description: The earliest songs here are by Villa-Lobos (from 1920-26 not counting the Forest of the Amazon pieces) where Debussian Impressionism meets Brazilian nostalgia. From then on we are in the Brazilian 20th century and the two-pronged musical sources of the countryside's gentle nostalgia (for example, the three songs by Santoro are isnpired by the countryside of São Paolo State and by the Brazilian northeast) and the urban, samba-derived Bossa Nova, whose most famous exponent, Jobim, gets the most songs recorded here (you'll hear The Girl from Ipanema in its original language). No texts (doesn't destroy the effect but would have been nice to have). Cristiane Roncaglio (soprano), André Bayer (guitar), Cristian Peix (piano).
