Joly BRAGA SANTOS (1924–1988)

Piano Concerto
Symphonic Overtures Nos. 1 and 2

Goran Filipec, Piano
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Álvaro Cassuto

Joly Braga Santos was Portugal's greatest orchestral composer, and this recording presents eight world premiere recordings including his very first work for orchestra, the Symphonic Overture No. 1. This and the Symphonic Overture No. 2 share a unified structure and lyrical themes, contrasting with the sombre Prelude, originally written for an intensely tragic opera. Braga Santos's characterful four 'miniatures' (tracks 4–7) are brought together to form an attractive suite, while his only Piano Concerto is a virtuoso spectacle with a large part for percussion and a gloriously anarchic approach to timbre and tonality.
