A series of nine suites, the Bachianas Brasileiras were an homage to J.S. Bach written by the Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos between 1930 and 1945. This is probably Villa-Lobos's single most popular composition. Published as a work for Soprano and 8 'Cellos it was originally conceived of as an instrumental piece with violin as the main melody instrument, as it is again in this arrangement.
