Notes & Reviews:

The "Choro" is a popular urban type of music used by street serenaders in Rio de Janeiro. Villa-Lobos took this simple style and in his various Choros created a new and vibrant form of orchestral music. Choros No. 8 offers music of barbaric intensity, exotic in scoring and rhythms, which draws upon the composers close familiarity with the music of his own country. Choros No. 9 encompasses a variety of mood, from parody to lyricism, all of which are unified in a triumphal conclusion.
