Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian
It's a typical Villa-Lobos patchwork, including a male chorus chanting in an Amazonian language, extravagant vocalise for the soprano solo and lushly romantic textures straight out of Hollywood...this recording...reveals the score in all its rambling magnificence.

Gramophone Magazine
The music is, of course, wilful, fluid, entirely unpredictable, with moments of extreme violence and tremendous beauty...The orchestration is variegated, by turns dense and transparent, lush and spare. Hungarian soprano Anna Korondi is excellent and her Portugese perfectly acceptable...Very warmly recommended.
