Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 is without doubt the best known of the nine works Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887 – 1959) composed to demonstrate his admiration for the music of JS. Bach. This particular work for voice and 8 cellos is in two movements. The Aria (Cantilena) is a part vocalise of a poem about nature by Ruth Valdares Correia. The text for the second movement, Dansa (Martele) is by Manuel Bandeira and sees Villa-Lobos drawing on his Brazilian roots, evoking the birds of his homeland.
