With The Chorões first performance coming up soon, we’ve been rehearsing a lot over the past couple of weeks, and as part of the program I’ll be performing some Villa-Lobos’ beautiful solo guitar preludes. This is a recording of his Prelude no. 5 from a rehearsal last week. The Prelude is homage to the nightlife of Rio, a dedication to the young people frequenting the concert halls and theatres of the city. It’s one of my favourites to play!
