Welcome to the site of the Villa-Lobos Museum!
The first version of this site in 1996 was responsible for providing democratic access to the universe of Villa-Lobos. In 2005, we remodeled the images and content, and we hope to renew the interest of fans, researchers, musicians and students.
Here you will find even more biographical data on the composer, many more images, samples of his music and his speech, and in the future, the Villa-Info database. Besides this, you will also find detailed information about the activities of the Villa-Lobos Museum, of the Friends of the Villa-Lobos Museum Association, and a wide array of news about everything that has been done, in Brazil and around the world, related to the life and work of this great Brazilian genius.
Learn, have fun, and if you wish, send your impressions and suggestions, which will be very welcome.
Under the guidance of Maestro Roberto Duarte, the "Villa-Lobos Digital" project of the ABM - Academia Brasileira de Música (Brazilian Academy of Music) - now offers scores of Villa-Lobos which went through a severe process of reviewing and editing.
