704. Meet Heitor

His first name is pronounced ay-TOR in Portuguese...
That man from Brazil, Villa-Lobos,
Wrote works* loved by bassoons (also oboes)

Some think stuff by Heitor
Is odd-sounding and hor-
rid and suitable only for hobos.

* Duet for Oboe & Bassoon and Trio for Clarinet Bassoon & Oboe.
