    Is the music available? Great pieces

    The age and quality of the Hernandez matches beautifully with the haunting cord progression of Etude #1. Wonderful wood tone. Likewise, the Leonard has a crisp and lively, almost bell-like tone with beautiful sustain that compliment Etude #2. I, too, would like to know if these Etudes have been published yet. Thanks Alex for such beautiful music.

  6. Reli Suyskens says:

    Why naming these “updates of Villa-Lobos” ? Are they better as Études? A bit respectless to the composer, at least strange, to claim a kind of posession of his works, while “updating” them. I could also play them backwards (not easy) and name them new works by Sobol – Alliv.

      I was the one who chose to call these updates, mainly for lack of a better term. Perhaps ‘homage’ is more appropriate? Dozza simply called them Etudes #1 and #2, but I think the inspiration is clear and still they are something new.

    Beautiful works! Three requests regarding publication – no response. Can we assume that they are not?

  8. Kai says:

    You can get in touch with Dozza here – He has these available for purchase.
