Sergiu Celibidache conducting Milhaud Saudades do Brasil
Orchestra Scarlatti della Rai di Napoli - 1957

The Saudades do Brasil (1920), Op. 67, are a suite of twelve dances for piano by Darius Milhaud. Composed after Milhaud's visit to Latin America in 1917-1918, each dance is based on a duple tango or samba rhythm and bears the name of a neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro or a Brazilian city. The title of the suite uses the Portuguese term saudade.
