can anyone tell me what year the song Prelude no 5 by Heitor Villa-Lobos was originally written. I need the original song year and not an arrangement of it.
- Page 113 of The Guitar from the Renaissance to the Present Day
- The Petrucci Music Library wiki, which catalogues public domain compositions.
- Wikipedia article for the composer
- Wikipedia article for the first prelude
Since I can't seem to find anything that offers a different year or disputes 1940 as the year of composition, I'd be inclined to say that this is evidence enough that Villa-Lobos wrote his five preludes, including "Prelude No. 5", in 1940.
