Ordered through the link above.  Thanks for pointing that low price out.  I haven't been able to find cheaper anywhere.  And I know cheap!

Hope GMG gets a commission!

8) Awesome! Glad you jumped on this deal. It won’t last forever!

Working thru the symphony series with the Sao Paulo Symphony on Naxos.  The symphonies are entertaining, by my favorite so far is their recording of Uiraparu, which is the best I've heard.

It looks like all the Late Symphonies are out (sorry, getting late to the game). Which are your fav of 7-12?

I’m a hardcore Villa-Lobos fan as my previous posts in this thread will indicate, but I cannot for the life of me out why I don’t enjoy the symphonies more than I do. The 4th, 6th, and 10th are my favorites, but, with the exception of the SQs, I believe he works better in freer forms like the Choros or Bachianas Brasileiras series for example. When you try to ‘cage’ mist, it simply escapes as it can’t be contained. I feel the same way about V-L.

Well, I listened to about three minutes of the openings of Symphonies 6-12, excluding 10. Yea, not as impressed this time around... No.8 started with the most difference, but I couldn't tell you now what is what. Thankfully, I can skip that RabbitHole fr now.
