Notes & Reviews:

This is the first of three volumes including rare and recently discovered works by Heitor Villa-Lobos. Guitarist Andrea Bissoli's research reveals new sources for lost manuscripts, and these recordings of the Valsa, the Motivos Gregos and Cancao do poeta do século XVIII represent the revival of music thought to have vanished forever. These works are joined by transcriptions which include one of Villa-Lobos' best loved melodies, the Ária from Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5, as well as the Concerto he wrote for the legendary Segovia.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
A fascinating release - Bissoli and colleagues present ten unfamiliar works for guitar, along with fine performances of the concerto and the Bachianas Brasileiras 5 Aria, all in very good to excellent performances. The concerto is very good. Soprano Lia Serafini has a lovely, warm sound, excellent Portuguese, and floats the return of the vocalize just magically. Serafini is also heard in several other works. All four are valuable additions to the voice and guitar repertory, and her voice is ideal. Two transcriptions by Emilio Pujol are from a piano cycle, Cirandas; a set of children's round dances are beautifully played by Bissoli and Federica Artuso. This is a valuable release and belongs in the collection of any who likes Villa-Lobos.
