This album of Villa-Lobos' piano music contains works that may be well known in Brazil but are hardly familiar elsewhere, and for most listeners, they will be real finds. The centerpiece is the group of ten excerpts from the set Cirandas ("Round Dances"), which are almost like a Brazilian version of Bartók; they are rooted in folk music but diverge into concise little statements exploiting the motivic and harmonic possibilities they represent. Almost everything here, as the album's title suggests, is Brazilian in flavor, but never in the usual ways; New York Skyline Melody (1939) is only a possible exception. The album ends spectacularly with the Liszt-level virtuosity of Rudepoêma, whose title suggests "Savage Poem" rather than rudeness. This fascinating work is a musical portrait of Artur Rubinstein, and when that pianist pointed out the meaning of the name, Villa-Lobos responded enthusiastically, "Yes! We are both savages!" The work is an excellent addition to the virtuoso repertory, and pianist Wilhem Latchoumia handles it confidently. Throughout, he has praiseworthy control over a wide variety of material that illuminates many strands of Villa-Lobos' musical personality. The La Dolce Volta label contributes excellent sound from the Metz Arsenal on an album that may well become one of the sleeper hits of the 2023 holiday season.
