Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian
Villa-Lobos's textural inventiveness is a constant delight in both [Choros 8 & 9] and the SŃo Paulo Symphony's performances under John Neschling exploit it to maximum effect.

Gramophone Magazine
After the excellent previous volume this successor - as well played as ASV's still incomplete rival survey - augurs well for what will presumably be the final instalment.

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
How many Ch˘ros are there? Fourteen numbered examples (with two claimed as "lost"), two Ch˘rosbis, a Wind Quintet en forme de Ch˘ros and a con- cluding (!) choral-and-orchestral "Introduction to the Ch˘ros", all more or less from the 1920s. No 6 (1926), which opens this second volume of BIS's survey, and No 9 (1929) may not have been written down until 1942 in time for their Rio premieres. Villa-Lobos was unreliable about many details of his work and these would not be unique in his output in being created only when performances finally materialised... Fabio Zanon's of the well known First is really rather good, languid and wistful, the tempi vibrantly elastic. This fine disc augurs well for what will presumably be the final instalment.
