Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

There are three great Portuguese Modernist master composers, one being Fernando Lopes-Graça (1906-94). Lopes-Graça integrated Portuguese folklore in his oeuvre, combining it with atonal, dissonance-spiced harmonies like other modern national composers such as Bartók or Ginastera. He was a fervent opponent of the Portuguese fascist Prime Minister Salazar, leading to career obstacles and imprisonment. As one hears in his idiomatic and effective piano music, he was a subtle and independent master.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2014
Pizarro's brilliant and urgently committed recital ranges widely though memories of Stravinsky, Prokofiev and Bartok, Debussy and Ravel...you are struck at every turn by the composer's compulsive and insistent voice.
