Guia prático (piano), W277-284, 358, 359, 473 (Villa-Lobos, Heitor)

It is very unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

General

Guia prático is a large compilation of folk songs from various parts of Brazil. It was released by Villa-Lobos as part of his plan to reform the music educational system of Brazil, which he did through his position as director of the Superindendência de Educação Musical e Artistica (which he held from 1932 to 1944). The work was intended to be "a practical guide to musical and artistic education" (Appleby 68).
In 1932, Villa-Lobos released a set of 137 folk songs arranged for chorus. This was originally to be the first part of the first volume of a six-volume series. Guia prático was the title for the entire set; the first volume was to contain popular children's songs. Unfortunately, he only ever completed the first volume. He did, however, produce five other volumes of choral music from folk, religious, and civic sources, also intended for instructional purposes for what he called 'orpheonic singing' (canto orfeônico).
The piano albums detailed on this page are arrangements Villa-Lobos made that were taken from the original 137 melodies of Volume 1.
