AbstractI have prepared critical comments on the Concerto para Violão e Pequena Orquestra by Heitor Villa-Lobos, based on a comparison of two autograph manuscripts, one copy manuscript, and three editions published by Max Eschig. These critical comments were prepared that (1) explains variant readings in the primary sources; (2) corrects a number of errors in both the sources and in prior published editions; (3) recommends optimal readings for modern performance. As part of the document I have presented a history of the Concerto, based on original letters and revised literature; and a detailed analysis of the piece. I also provided a transcription for two guitars, with the aim of expanding the rehearsal and performance possibilities of the Concerto.
