Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Heitor Villa-Lobos is considered the most widely recognized Brazilian composer. Drawing influences from Europe, Brazilian folk music and modernist music, his compositions span a range of styles. The Sonata-fantasia No. 1, written in 1915, shows a preoccupation with the European concert tradition, but it also contains extremes of emotion that foreshadow Villa-Lobos' mature style. The sonata is in one movement, and contains many virtuosic passages for both instruments. At times, the violin and piano alternate in impassioned soliloquy, and at other times they join together in thunderous statements. Francesca Anderegg
