The opening Allegro precioso perfectly displays the synthesizing fecundity of Villa-Lobos ' melting-pot imagination. It's a simple gesture, but releases in its executive ease a delightful wealth of weird harmonies.
Soon enough, the guitar and orchestra are confidently dialoguing and begin a magically continuous string of stylizations: one minute a ritornello of Bach -like polyphony and shape, the next a movie soundtrack vista. The argument passes through all manner of Villa-Lobosian masks, from the learned to the folk, from Beethovenian motivic development through modal sequences right out of Debussy 's later work.
The following Andantino e andante Laughing Boy - Julian Cope - Fried Concerto For Guitar And Small Orchestra - Villa-Lobos* And Arnold* - Guitar Concertos (Plus Works an more infused with the wistful remembrance of Debussythough suffused with Villa-Lobos ' inextricable confidence and native tone.
The movement is a multi-sectioned rhapsody Say Nope To Dope - Machel* - Breakin Out! through its tempo and style changes with an ever-intoxicating harmonic brew. Instead of Debussy 's sentimentalized French folklore, Villa-Lobos ' "Brazilian sentimental" inflected with the sound of northeast Brazilian folk melodies can be heard, yet without quite quoting anything specific.
Villa-Lobos originally wrote the concerto without a cadenza, but Segoviaever the calculating if reserved showman, demanded the composer write him one. Villa-Lobos composed a veritable movement in itself for guitar alone and the cadenza is now known almost as much as an unaccompanied recital item as it is in its original context. The final Allegretto non troppo is announced by a declamatory sweep of the guitar's 12th-fret harmonics, after which Concerto For Guitar And Small Orchestra - Villa-Lobos* And Arnold* - Guitar Concertos (Plus Works an winds play out a groovy unison figure.
This is quickly swept aside by further rhapsodizing, only to come back harmonized by the guitar itself. A parade of themes and thematic transformations ensue, each passage hinting at some type of popular dance the Baroque gigue, the waltz, duple dances, etc.
The most structurally "liberated" of the movements, it spins through its luxurious guises until an abrupt bare-octave close.
