I. Allegro non troppo; II. Andante sostenuto; III. Scherzo. Vivace; IV. Allegro troppo e Finale
The Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1887. By the time of his death in 1959 he had long been established as the leading composer of his native country, with Brazil's varied traditions being the source of his musical inspiration. A concert of his works in Rio in 1915, with a program that included his first Piano Trio and second Violin Sonata, attracted some local interest. From that beginning, Villa-Lobos's reputation grew steadily until 1942 when he was invited to establish the National Conservatory of Music in Rio.
