Cello and Orchestra Music (Portuguese) - COSTA, L. / LOPES-GRAÇA, F. / FREITAS BRANCO, L. de / BRAGA SANTOS, J. (Borralhinho, Neves)

This recording brings together for the first time some of Portugal’s leading composers in a unique programme dedicated to their works for cello and orchestra. The impressionistic and luxuriant harmonies of Luiz Costa’s Poema contrast with Fernando Lopes-Graça’s sombre and austere Concerto da Camera, a commission from Mstislav Rostropovich. Luís de Freitas Branco’s Cena Lírica is an early, romantically expressive piece, while the Concerto by his eminent pupil Joly Braga Santos is a hauntingly poetic symphonic masterpiece.
