Heitor Villa-Lobos composed Symphony No. 6, considered the beginning of his mature symphonic style, with the mountains and hills of Brazil as inspiration.  Taking this idea a step further, some of the melodies were derived from transcribing the actual contours of the landscape.  Symphony No. 7 is scored for a huge orchestra and is one of the composers' most significant and ambitious statements.  Both works represent Villa-Lobos' desire to create a specifically Brazilian idiom.  This recording is the first in a complete cycle of Villa-Lobos symphonies.  The Sao Paolo Symphony is conducted by Isaac Karabtchevsky.
