>Santos, Joly Braga : Encuzilhada (Crossroads), ballet in one act
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Undoubtedly the leading Portuguese symphonist of the century, Joly Braga Santos composed his Second Symphony at the age of 23. The work is as vivid and strong as it is emotional and lyrical; it is an expansive and mature masterwork. The ballet "Crossroads," composed at 43, is a highly original kaleidoscope of contrasting moods colorded by a variety of folklore from different origins.
