Notes & Reviews:

The composer Fernando Lopes-Graça (1906 - 94) was something of a Portuguese Shostakovich: as a committed socialist, he faced repression from Portugal's rightist military dictatorship; his works were banned and he was stripped of his official positions. Lopes-Graça responded in music, evolving a feisty, wiry Bartókian style that drew on Portuguese folk-music. This recording features Lopes-Graça's own Bechstein piano, played by Olga Prats, who worked closely with him. Reviewing Vol. 1, Fanfare stated: "... the disc should be heard by 20th c. music lovers... a strong, individual voice".
