Villa-Lobos…

Heitor Villa-Lobos was a Brazilian composer, and has been called the most significant Latin American composer of the 20th century… I’m not quite sure who has called him that.

Oh, there it is… I see it now… Some guy named Simon Wright called Villa-Lobos that. I wonder if Wright was right… Or was he, perhaps, left, when Wright said that? Inquiring minds wanna know… *AHEM* The incomparable Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5. Sung by the almost equally incomparable Kiri Te Kanawa…
