The Classical Corner III

This is the fourth of five Preludes for guitar by the Brazilian composer Heitor Villa Lobos. (March 5, 1887 — November 17, 1959) He wrote numerous orchestral, chamber, instrumental and vocal works. His music was influenced by both Brazilian folk music and by stylistic elements from the European classical tradition, as exemplified by his Bachianas Brasileiras (Brazilian Bachian-pieces).

This prelude is built on a single motif, restated in many forms, including in harmonics.
