f the "Aria" from the the "Bachianas Brasileiras Nº 5" is first in popularity, then the Tocata, more popularly known as the "Trenzinho do Caipira" ("The Little Train of the Rube"), from the "Bachianas Brasileiras Nº 2" is certainly second. One of Villa-Lobos’ most characteristic pieces, dating from 1931, the "Trenzinho" demonstrates a rich orchestral coloring, present in many of the composer’s scores. Here, we also feel the strong impression that back-country music, which he heard on his travels through the interior of Brazil, made on him.
