“Philippe Bertaud: On the Music of Heitor Villa-Lobos”
Miramuse is happy to finally announce the release of the instructional guitar DVD, “Philippe Bertaud: On the Music of Heitor Villa-Lobos.” After shooting this three-camera video production in Gary Powell’s studio, the release had been stalled in the ever-deepening abyss of securing the synchronization rights for the usage of Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos’ music. The process of securing the rights took thirty months of research, complete with many dead-ends, confusion, and the kind of bureaucratic communication of which only a snail could be proud.
This is the first release for Miramuse to be distributed worldwide by Carl Fischer Music in New York. My special thanks to lifelong friend and musician, Rae Moses and to Chris Scialfa for his steadfast support, and of course, the charming Frenchman, Philippe Bertaud, for his undeniable patience.
