It's a shame that Horszowski, the dedicatee of the 11th Album of Guia Pratico, didn't leave behind any significant Villa-Lobos recordings.  A mare encheu and Passa, passa gaviao are the only pieces played by him that I know of.

Horszowski also played the U.S. premiere of Hommage a Chopin; again, he's never recorded the piece commercially.

Nice to see that this album is now (February 2011) available at The Naxos Music Library .
