For those who are willing to follow difficult but glorious work like the one you learn and practice in your home but again it can be said, once that work is possessed in the purest and most beautiful of all philosophies. However, it will never be too much to repeat, as I do now, quoting this excerpt from the Proverbs of Solomon: 'Keep your heart more than all things, for from it come the fruits of life'.

Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887 - 1959) is considered, by both amateurs and specialists, to be the greatest Brazilian conductor and composer. In 1915, Villa-Lobos started to work as an instrumentalist and, at the age of 19, wrote his first compositions. He traveled a lot around the world, especially in France and the United States, directing his own compositions and winning the admiration of the public, including Debussy and Stravinski. In Brazil, he did detailed research on Brazilian folklore, which inspired most of his compositions.

"Didi" is a pianist and piano teacher from Rio de Janeiro who still lives in Rio, was a student and friend of Heitor Villa-Lobos.

Handwritten or typed letters, autographs or scores signed by the Brazilian composer are increasingly sought after by collectors who love classical music, both in Brazil and abroad. This piece, combining a letter, relevant content, and a short dedication in the form of a score, is particularly desirable.
