Product Description

Frederico de Freitas was one of Portugal's most prolific composers, whose highly successful ballets are inspired by local folklore and romance. The Silly Girl's Dance is a work of exuberant musical vitality about a timid village girl who turns out to be the loveliest of them all. The Wall of Love describes innocent amorous encounters, the Medieval Suite conjures 'the fragrance of medieval Portuguese poetry', while dances, songs and 'fiestas' are evoked in the lively Ribatejo.

Álvaro Cassuto is Portugal's foremost conductor. He has a discography encompassing over fifty recordings, among which is a highly successful ongoing series for Marco Polo and Naxos, initiated in 1997 and dedicated to Portugal's most important composers, which has met with enthusiastic and unanimous praise from the international press.

Delightful in every way 25 April 2013
By David Rowe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This collection of rare music by de Freitas is simply delightful in every way. The Royal Scottish National Orchestra plays marvelously for Alvaro Cassuto, who obviously has a real feel and affection for this wonderful music. And topping it all off, this is one of Naxos's very best recordings - superlative orchestral sound in a warm, full, rich acoustic. This is a must-have disc; it is the my disc of the year so far!
