The finest recordings of these works available! The Brazilian composer (we needn't remind his most ardent supporters that he's the most significant Latin American composer of all time) behind numerous orchestral, chamber, instrumental and vocal works lets his creative genius show on Choros (from the Portuguese verb chorar , "to weep") Nos. 1-12 and Bachianas Brasileiras ("Brazilian Bach-pieces") Nos. 1-9.

Joseph Wölfl is known – after a fashion – as the pianist who played Ludwig van Beethoven to a draw in a famous cutting contest in Vienna in 1795. To far fewer listeners, Wölfl is a composer of negligible merit who died just a little too young and left behind compositions too slight in substance to enter the pantheon of classical music's greats, or even near-greats; this is pretty much the verdict of his Grove's biography, as well. From Russia comes a disc that puts this easy summation to a rigorous test……..Uncle Dave Lewis @ AllMusic.com
