Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Villa-Lobos wrote 14 Chôros, substantial works rooted in Brazilian popular music. As you might expect, the Eighth and Ninth of the series are drenched in exotic tonal colors and alive with exciting rhythms. No. 8 features an array of conventional and unconventional percussion instruments including rattles, scrapers, and the caracaxa, which opens the piece. It's full of lively tunes as well and has an important piano part. No. 9 was composed four years later, in 1929. It opens with a riot of color, tapering down to a fascinating section for brass and winds over an obsessively repeated rhythm and a bassoon solo that's a twin to the start of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. Like its predecessor, Chôros No. 9 is an endlessly enjoyable work, and it gets a bang-up performance from Schermerhorn and the Hong Kong musicians. Their command of the idiom makes you swear you're hearing a Brazilian band. Once available on the Marco Polo label, it shouldn't be missed in this Naxos budget re-release. --Dan Davis
