The recordings by the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra of works by Villa-Lobos, Camargo Guarnieri and other Brazilian composers have demonstrated the variety of their national music and the multi-faceted nature of Brazilian dance. Alexandre Levy's Samba and Alberto Nepomuceno's Batuque are early examples of a Brazilian art music which draws heavily on the dance rhythms of popular music. Notable latter-day examples are Antonio 'Tom' Jobim with his Chegada dos Candangos from 1960 and Edino Krieger's Passacaglia for the New Millennium. Roberto Minczuk has previously led the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra in acclaimed performances of Villa-Lobos' Bachianas Brasileiras on BIS (BIS-CD-1830/32), and here returns with this colourful collection of dances for symphony orchestra.
