Soprano Leila Guimarães sings Heitor Villa-Lobo's Bachianas nº5, Aria (Cantilena).

"In Nº5, the best known of the Bachianas and very likely the best loved of all Villa-Lobo's works, the wonderful Brazilian soprano Leila Guimarães is so deep inside the piece that there is no point in making comparisons with other performances. It's not just a matter of her singing in her native language and a familiar idiom; it's as if that delicious voice - rich and creamy and incredibly luminous - had been created just for this music, or the music written in anticipation of it."
