The identical recording was released in Brazil as  Heitor Villa-Lobos concertos para solistas e orquestras, on the Kuarup label. I'm not sure which release came first.

Date Recorded:

Label: 
Le Chant du Monde

The instrumental aristocracy of the Villa-Lobos world in Brazil take on three of the most important concertante works by Villa-Lobos:

  • Turibio Santos in the Guitar Concerto
  • Paulo Moura in the Saxophone Fantasia
  • Noel Devos in the Ciranda das sete notas

The Orquestra de Câmara Brasileira accompanies the soloists under the direction of Bernardo Bessler, and also contributes Bachianas Brasileiras #9.

Good luck finding this CD - try eBay or Amazon sellers.

Now that Kuarup is defunct (sigh), it won't be easy finding the Brazilian version either. You can download the MP3 files at the Brazilian Concert Music blog.
