Notes & Reviews:

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

MusicWeb International, June 2016
Sound of pleasing detail and full spectrum impact in this provocative collection.
