Villa-Lobos: Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5: Aria (Cantilena)

Happy New Year to one and all. I leave you with this haunting vocal by Renee Fleming, it was featured in the movie Bel Canto. Heitor Villa-Lobos was the composer and wrote a series of nine pieces. It represents a fusion of Brazilian folk and popular music on the one hand and is a Bach-inspired Brazilian piece. I highly recommend the movie. Try to remember all the beauty in the world.
