Hello, Good Evening! I was browsing past statistics today and I noticed those few classical music albums releases in the past month had a great interest of our community. I’m talking about Encontro, the collaboration between Clara Sverner, Turibio Santos, Paulo Moura and Olivia Byington, Turibio Santos first LP for Caravelle and Maria Lucia Godoy, O Canto da Amazonia with Neco’s guitar. The numbers are really surprising with Maria Lucia Godoy and Turibio Santos being the leaders. Let’s make Loronix goes classical again.

This is Turibio Santos – Villa Lobos (1971), for MIS and issued by RCA Victor, the second Turibio Santos tribute to the Brazilian Maestro Heitor Villa Lobos, recorded in Paris. This is a truly beautiful record, Side A has Turibio Santos accompanied by Orquestra de Camara Jean-Francois Paillard, featuring flute, oboe, sax, celesta and harp, performing Sexteto Mistico, composed by Villa Lobos in 1917. Side B is Turibio Santos guitar performing alone five Villa Lobos preludios. It is hard to say which is the nicest side, but I had a slight preference for Side B, it is very nice to hear Turibio Santos performing alone. I urge Loronixers to feedback this release using comments section. Tracks include:

This is for musicians, guitar aficionados, classical music lovers and anyone who wants to know more about the origins of the way of playing an instrument that has a great identification with the music from Brazil, the violao (acoustic guitar). This album has a series of violao estudos written by Maestro Heitor Villa Lobos in 1929, performed by Turibio Santos, a gifted classical violao player more than 40 years ago. I think this quick and very hard to build introduction is solid enough to get your attention to this great album.

This is Turibio Santos – Villa Lobos | 12 Estudos para Violao (1963), for Caravelle. Making a fast Internet research on Villa Lobos 12 Estudos para Violao it clear these twelve pieces are really a reference for any serious musician. This is also Turibio Santos debut LP, the first step of one of the most important classical guitar performers in Brazil with more than 40 albums recorded. These very old Turibio Santos renditions to Villa Lobos Estudos are considered the best interpretation of this anthological set of compositions. I’m really proud to own the original vinyl issue of this first Turibio Santos LP, the vinyl transfer sounds excellent and FLAC files are also available to maximize your experience. Tracks include:

01 – Estudo Nº 1 Em Mi Menor (Villa-Lobos)
02 – Estudo Nº 2 Em Lá Maior (Villa-Lobos)
03 – Estudo Nº 3 Em Ré Maior (Villa-Lobos)
04 – Estudo Nº 4 Em Sol Maior (Villa-Lobos)
05 – Estudo Nº 5 Em Dó Maior (Villa-Lobos)
06 – Estudo Nº 6 Em Mi Menor (Villa-Lobos)
07 – Estudo Nº 7 Em Mi Menor (Villa-Lobos)
08 – Estudo Nº 8 Em Dó Sustenido MenorR (Villa-Lobos)
09 – Estudo Nº 9 Em Fá Sustenido Menor (Villa-Lobos)
10 – Estudo Nº 10 Em Si Menor (Villa-Lobos)
11 – Estudo Nº 11 Em Si Menor (Villa-Lobos)
12 – Estudo Nº 12 Em Lá Menor (Villa-Lobos)
