Anyone who thinks they have the full measure of Villa-Lobos’ compositional palette will do well to refer to the two chamber works on this recording, "Sexteto místico" and "Quinteto instrumental", in which new and daring sonic combinations enhance the composer’s seductive lyricism. The programme also has two concertos that feature outstanding soloists: guitarist Manuel Barrueco was hailed by American Record Guide as ‘one of the leading guitarists of his generation’; while Le Monde de la Musique considered soloist José Staneck ‘the David Oistrakh of the harmonica’. All in all, there’s never a dull moment here, either in the music’s conception or execution. The concertos and chamber works on this album show Villa- Lobos’ unceasing enthusiasm for new colours and sonorities in his music. "The Concerto for Guitar and Small Orchestra" was his last work for the instrument and written for Segovia. A cornerstone of the repertoire, it contains soaring melodies and rhythmic vitality couched in virtuosic writing. Exploring the instrument’s full harmonic and chromatic possibilities, the "Concerto for Harmonica" is also deftly orchestrated. New and daring sonic combinations are to be heard in the two chamber works demonstrating the composer’s extraordinary gift for seductive lyricism.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
