    If I can't watch the program live I will definitely watch the recording  (several times).

    Where was all of this when I began playing in the late 1960's???

  • I was thinking on the comment from Stanley Yates who mentioned that Villa Lobos work were copyrighted and for that reason,  the manuscript could not be shared.  These pieces were written a long time ago.  I thought that copyright had a fix length of time around 70 years and then after it goes into the public domain.  I may be totally wrong about the rules and maybe the rules vary between countries.  It would be great if tone base could have a paper explaining how copyright works for music..

  • Thanks Martin and Stanley! I wanted to add that one can actually hear Villa-Lobos playing Prelude No. 1 and the Choro No. 1. This is a historical recording curated by Turibio Santos distributed by Sanctusrecordings.com. Just search Villa-Lobos plays Villa-Lobos and you should be able to find it.

     

    It was actually Stanley that enlightened me to this recording many years ago.  What is fascinating is you can hear Villa-Lobos playing all of those glissandos that we sometimes hear guitarists omit.
