About this Recording
The Music of My Country – Portuguese Conductor Álvaro Cassuto Talks with Jeremy Siepmann

LOPES-GRACA, F.: Sinfonia / Suite Rustica No. 1 / Poema de dezembro (Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Cassuto)

Fernando Lopes-Graça was one of the most prolific Portuguese composers of the 20th century. His use of Portuguese folk-music to forge a personal style is represented in the Suite Rústica No 1. More sombre moods are expressed in the dark atmosphere of December Poem, which contrasts with the extrovert Festival March. Neo-classical in its extended structures and thematic development, Lopes-Graça’s award-winning Symphony maintains an unmistakable connection with the colours and textures of his nation to create music of great expressive and dramatic depth.
