Heitor Villa-Lobos is certainly one of the most extolled and most loved Brazilian composers of all times. His musical works not only epitomized the variegated Brazilian backdrop but also represented it in all its copiousness, ingenuity, and verve. An ingenious talent, his orchestral, chamber, and instrumental pieces exhibit a fine blend of Western classical with Brazilian folk music. The exquisite blend of diverse genres is what made his musical pieces unique from his peers. With a musical career spanning across 50 years, Villa-Lobos had written more than 2,000 compositions, the cream of the crop being his most loved masterpiece “Bachianas Brasileiras”. According to John W Duarte, “Villa-Lobos remains one of the most individual and colorful figures in twentieth-century music, one who took what he wanted from the music he heard floating in the air and bent it to his own strongly personal purposes - one of which was to present a panorama of all aspects of his homeland.” Through his remarkable efforts, he carved a niche for himself that very few musicians can think of surpassing.
