This eight-disc tribute to the great Austrian pianist Paul Badura-Skoda includes music by Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Brahms, Ravel, Frank Martin, and many others, as well as interviews with the pianist.  Though he's not known for playing Villa-Lobos, the set includes a grand-manner version of Impressoes Seresteiras from the Ciclo brasileiro.  Though it may not have the authenticity of versions by Brazilian pianists, I think it serves the piece well, if it's played as a stand-alone, encore flourish.
