Chôros No.1

by:

Ali Arango

Heitor Villa-Lobos composed sixteen Chôros between 1920 and 1929 dedicated to the Brazilian style of music. Together they form a very ambitious collection which is also considered to be among the most important by Villa-Lobos. For this lesson on Chôros No.1, the first piece in the set, Ali Arango discusses the crucial rhythmic, harmonic, and melodic ideas that make Brazilian music, and Villa-Lobos' compositions in particular, so evocative and unique. He shares several of the ways he adds originality to the piece, as well as methods for practicing the complex technique this music demands.
