Nesta rua, nesta rua

Played by Beatriz Salles.

One of sixteen piano pieces by Heitor Villa-Lobos from 1926 called Cirandas, or Round Dances, first performed by Tomás Terán, Teatro Lírico, Rio de Janeiro, August 13 1929. The title (In this Street, in this Street) comes from a (rather dreary: it nearly spoils the piece) Brazilian folk tune which appears at 1:00.

I linked here to three scintillating piano miniatures from 1939: the most charming music ever written about stars.
