Description: The final volume in this series - all released within a year - brings us our newest and only available complete Chôros cycle on CD (ASV started one but they are now semi-comatose as a label). The 37-minute No. 12 is among V-L's finest works up to that date, both powerful and delicate, with some moments of chamber-like instrumentation, rhythmic insistence giving way to reverie, urban popular music to Afro-Indian music... a microcosm of the composer and his country. São Paolo Symphony Chorus and Orchestra; John Neschling.
