Milhaud's recollections from his nearly two years in Rio de Janeiro (1917-18) compelled him to compose this series of poetic dances---each capturing the unique charms of Rio's different districts, and reflecting the mood and atmosphere of Brazil. Influened greatly by tango rhythms, these dances are original, and not based on Brazilian folk tunes. Acclaimed music historian and authority Maurice Hinson has meticulously edited this new edition of Milhaud's "Saudades do Brazil" based on the first printed edition.

    The Saudades do Brazil represents a beautiful collection of 20th century harmonic dissonance. This edition is very good in fingerings and in the clarity of the printed text.
