The Complete Choros & Bachianas Brasileiras

Label BIS
Composers Villa-Lobos, Heitor
Orchestras / Ensembles São Paulo Symphony Orchestra
BIS Boss Robert von Bahr: We have been extremely lucky with this Box, even though it was "only" in CD quality. It would seem like that very many persons - like me - have found the readings of the São Paulo orchestra totally congenial when it comes to Brazil's great composer Villa-Lobos. The sound from their hall is also an important point. Anyway, the Complete Bachianas Brasileiras and Chôros (plus the Complete Guitar Music) are here for you, and in High-Resolution, which would make this Bundle the only chance you have of getting this in better-than-CD quality.

Please note the following: On Disc 6 the Wind Quintet has been upsampled from 16 to 24-bit, likewise with all of Disc 7 (the Complete Guitar Music). This is because we cannot sell a Bundle with different bit rates. Of course we haven't charged anything extra for the upsampled parts of this Bundle.
