Orchestral Works
Instrumentation: 

Villa-Lobos orchestrated the piano work for a large orchestra in 1932 (W310).  "When one compares the piano version of Rudepoema to the orchestral arrangement made by the composer himself, one can only be amazed at how 'orchestral' the piano work already is." - Tarasti (1995), p. 266.
