The four earlier Villa-Lobos's symphonies were written between 1916 and 1919, crowning his first creative cycle. These are vigorous works, that reveal his potential as a beginner composer, but they still remain without a thorough analytical investigation. This research intends to investigate its harmonic and formal structure, providing a fresh interpretation that correlates these data with some contextual elements. (AU)
