Description: Mostly rare V-L here, with no other recording available of the short, intimate Canção do Amor which was part of his ill-fated Green Mansions film score and only one other recording of the big orchestral Choros No. 6 and the Introduçao to the Choros series (written in 1929 after the series had been completed). The 1917 Sexteto, echoing street band sounds, anticipates the latter cycle. Andrea Bissoli (guitar), Minas Gerais Philharmonic Orchestra; Fabio Mechetti.
