The death of António Fragoso (1897–1918) at the age of 21 robbed the Iberian Peninsula of a composer of great potential, the second within a century, following the Spaniard Juan Arriaga who

died at the age of 20 in 1826, having displayed extraordinary promise.

Fragoso, from Portugal, is less well known than Arriaga, but the music on this CD reveals a young composer thoroughly aware of the major musical figures of the time; the influence of Debussy and

Fauré, for example, can be detected in the 1916 Suite Romantique for violin and piano. The Trio, also of 1916, begins as a more formal work but reveals the composer’s unique voice in the finale,

where a series of chromatic progressions and an exploitation of the piano’s lower register create a dramatic sense of weightlessness and timelessness.

Also included on this recording, the Violin Sonata of 1917 has survived as the opening movement only, and displays many of the characteristics of the trio, particularly through its affirmative and

memorable melodic style.

This CD provides an opportunity to discover the music of one of classical music’s ‘might have beens’. Fragoso’s tragically short life robbed Portugal of a composer with the potential for greatness.
