LOPES-GRACA, F.: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 2 (Nebolsin, Orquestra Sinfonica do Porto - Casa da Musica, Bamert)

The music of Fernando Lopes-Graça, one of the most significant Portuguese composers of the twentieth-century, went through several phases of development. Though rooted in folk music, it absorbed influences not only from much earlier composers such as Scarlatti and Seixas, but from contemporaries such as Bartók. These influences are potent in the Piano Concerto No 1 of 1940, a highly personal, atmospheric and superbly orchestrated work imbued with bittersweet romanticism. Though the Iberian Baroque permeates its finale, the Piano Concerto No 2 is a much darker and more ambivalent work, marking a new milestone in his development.
