Notes & Reviews:

Luis de Freitas Branco was a pre-eminent figure in Portuguese music of the first half of the twentieth century. This first disc of a four-volume series of Freitas Branco's orchestral works features the 'First Symphony', in which the influence of Cesar Franck, Brahms and French musical impressionism is assimilated into his own musical style. The 'Scherzo Fantastique' is a short single movement work, brilliantly orchestrated yet extremely controlled in its use of the orchestral forces. The 'Suite Alentejana No. 1' is based on the rich musical folklore of the Alentejo, a region of Portugal south of Lisbon where Freitas Branco spent many of his summers.
