About the Author

David P. Appleby is Professor Emeritus at Eastern Illinois University and recipient of the Villa-Lobos Award by the Brazilian government.


The author has adopted a realistic approach in his book, giving account of the adventuresome life of Villa-Lobos with appropriate commentaries on his principal works [and] an excellent perception of the technical and aesthetic qualities of the works discussed...The new book is an excellent introduction to the American public for further study of the music of Heitor Villa-Lobos and a valuable contribution to the extensive bibliography of the Maestro.
*Brasiliana, (Translated From Portuguese)*

...provides a panoramic view of the main historical and artistic events in twentieth-century Brazil.
*Notes: Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association*

[Heitor Villa-Lobos: A Life (1887-1959)] provides a rounded picture of this great figure in 20th century music.
*Hispanic Outlook*

There is no doubt that [this] is a labor of personal commitment and dedication over the years, made possible by the author's research and teaching in Brazil....The result is a very personal collection of information dependent circumstantially on the authors' travels, sources, and interests....Appleby's work as pure story can be read with enjoyment and delight.
*Luso-Brazilian Review*

This book is marvelous on detail about the great man...I do like this book and I will return to read it over and over again.
*Classical Guitar*

This reviewer commends Appleby for the superb work.
