Notes on the Sentimental Melody

In 1957 Heitor Villa-lobos composed the score entitled "Forest of the Amazons" for the MGM film Green Mansions. According to Antonio Carlos Jobim, who met Ville-Lobes in Rio in that some year, "Villo-Lobos did not attempt to follow the film story, but rather suggested its mood and atmosphere, transmitting joy and anxiety as well as serenity and tenderness through his music:' The originality of Villa-Lobos's score is also shown in the orchestral accompaniment, especially in those songs in which the guitar is played in counterpoint with the voice. Such contad with Villa-Lobos while creating a soundtrack influenced Jobirn's own approach the fallowing year when he

composed the music for the award-winning film Block Orpheus in collaboration with Luiz Bonfo.

Sentimental Melody was the love theme of the film Green Mansions. Its haunting lyricism recalls the spirit and inventiveness of some of the Bachianos Brosileiros. Villa-lobos wrote this song for soprano and piano and then orchestrated it. In this guitar arrangement, the beautiful melody is projected by different voices. In the repeat it exposes a dialogue between the bass and harmonic sounds, thereby adding a special color with a contrapuntal accompani-

ment.
