Quote from: SonicMan46 on July 18, 2022, 02:09:26 PMHi John - believe that I'll enjoy the Karabtchevsky from my Spotify listening this morning. Thanks for noticing the spreadsheet typos - I have plenty of those - kind of boring to make mutliple entries so I go fast and don't always double check (and me a medical writer during my career! :laugh: )Karl - not sure that I'd go as far as John on the Piano Concertos comments - V-L started these later in his life (58 y/o for the first one) and probably not that motivated to compose at his best level, just a thought; I'm listening now to PCs 3-5 and am enjoying (would I rather be listening to something else by him - probably) - the writing can be rambling w/ at times weird dynamic shifts (I've attached some reviews - one from Grammophone w/ a cautioned recommendation and one from Amazon, someone I usually like but leaving only a 2*/5* rating); now the Brazilian pianist, Christina Ortiz is wonderful as usual and gives her best to put this music across - my best recommendation is try to stream several of the works and then decide - it's an inexpensive double-Decca.

Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on July 18, 2022, 02:42:05 PMThanks, Dave. Cristina Ortiz is mighty fine in the "piano concerto Choros" (or is it a Bachianas? ... I admit to some bewilderment in this composer's expansive œuvre.
Quote from: Maestro267 on July 19, 2022, 12:52:01 AMThere's one in each cycle, and Ortiz has recorded both. Bachianas Brasileiras No. 3 and Choros No. 11.
Quote from: Leo K. on November 28, 2022, 01:37:05 PMI'm also impressed with the guitar and harmonica concertos.
Quote from: Florestan on November 29, 2022, 01:17:46 PMI have only this recording and I must say that I enjoyed the guitar concerto (much) more than the harmonica one. My favorite Villa-Lobos so far, though, is the Pica Pau choro and the choro which is a piano concerto in all but name (can't remember their numbers otomh).
