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.

Here's an easy call: these are the finest recordings of these works currently available. In reviewing the individual releases, I had perhaps one small reservation concerning the disc containing Bachianas Brasileiras No. 4, but this evaporates in the face of the achievement as a whole. Both cycles, the Bachianas Brasileiras and the Choros, constitute two of the most original, colorful, and enjoyable collections of works by any 20th-century composer. They belong in every serious record collection, and they have never been so consistently well performed and recorded. At last, Villa-Lobos' compatriots have managed to do his quirky genius full justice. The excellent disc of solo guitar music makes a fine and thoughtful bonus, and at seven discs for the price of three, you'd have to be insane not to grab this set immediately.
