Notes & Reviews:

Marcelo Bratke continues his complete solo piano series of Villa-Lobos works! These are very short works; only two of these miniature masterpieces last for three minutes or more. Their brevity demands concentration and requires a rigorous sense of structure, as Villa-Lobos lets endless inventions collide and overlap in sound saturated with ingenuity. The oldest pieces, dating from 1912, are the Suites Infantis (Children's Suites).

New York Times
Villa-Lobos, played by Mr. Bratke at the start, was best of all, offering hints of wildness, yet with elegant construction, subtle rhythmic dislocations, and shining piano colors.
