Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

An exceptional guitarist pays homage to Latin American's greatest composer as Frank Bungarten performs the guitar oeuvre of Heitor Villa-Lobos. He documents three important creative phases in the career of this composer who began as a cellist, taught himself to play the guitar, and as Brazil's musical heart and soul left more than a thousand works in various shapes and sizes to the music world.

The young Villa-Lobos became acquainted with a whole wonderful mix of European musical styles and Afro-Brazilian elements in the Rio of the turn of the century. On the streets the popular choro, a mix of waltz, polka, and samba, could be heard. It was to this popular musical form that he dedicated his first virtuoso guitar compositions, presented by Frank Bungarten in the form of asuite.

Villa-Lobos initially did his picking and choosing when it came to the Western musical tradition. He ignored Viennese classicism and showed an interest only in Bach, Puccini, Debussy, and the Russian composers. His independence created a sensation when he visited Paris in 1923 - not to learn but to show how he did things.

He wrote the Twelve Études during this phase of his career. Villa-Lobos had long returned to Brazil when he wrote the Five Preludes in 1940, a typical late work returning stylistically to his earlier compositional periods. Reminiscences of the choros of his youth as well as a homage to the great Bach can be heard. It is only natural that Frank Bungarten has incorporated these guitar pieces, among the most-played works of the twentieth century, into his extensive repertoire.

Classic FM Magazine
Frank Bungarten's bold playing suits the rainbow colours of Villa-Lobos's music, and the huge technical demands of the studies hold no fear for him... he always retains a singing melodic line, which adds up to a loose-limbed, spontaneous feel that's very appropriate... Bungarten is a first-rate player and does the music every justice.
