Heitor Villa-Lobos, Bidú Sayão, Symphony Of The Air And Chorus - Inspiration - Brazil / Heitor Villa-Lobos: Forest Of The Amazon mp3 album
The male chorus represents the ancestral voice of the Indian human inhabitants of the forest. The reproduction of bird singing and of other typical noises has not to be conceived as merely descriptive; on the contrary, the idea is to convey the feelings of a person immersed in the forest. Villa-Lobos used the Symphony of the Air, an orchestra created in 1954 by members of the NBC Symphony Orchestra after NBC decided to disband the orchestra and the weekly broadcast concerts. The orchestra was usually led by Leopold Stokowski, who had regularly conducted the NBC Symphony during the 1940s, and it survived until 1963.
Heitor Villa-Lobos (Portuguese: ; March 5, 1887 – November 17, 1959) was a Brazilian composer, conductor, cellist, pianist, and guitarist described as "the single most significant creative figure in 20th-century Brazilian art music". Villa-Lobos has become the best-known South American composer of all time. A prolific composer, he wrote numerous orchestral, chamber, instrumental. The recording was issued both on LP and reel-to-reel tape (United Artist UAC 8007, stereo 7 1/2 IPS).
