Abstract

The lecture explores the idiomatic "guitaristic" gestures used by Villa-Lobos in selected Etudes and Preludes focusing on the relationships between both the "idiomatic" fingerings/shapes employed by Villa-Lobos and their the harmonic and formal design of each composition. The emphasis is emphasis on Etude number 12, though there is further discussion of how early twentieth century compositional trends were incorporated in the Etudes, Preludes and Choros of Villa-Lobos.
