What a discovery!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Freitas Branco: Symphony No.4, Vathek (Audio CD)
I was completely unfamiliar with Branco. I've read stuff about (and heard samples of) Vathek that made me click on 'purchase'. Little did I know that aside from a daring piece well ahead of its time (think Ligeti in 1913.. or Langgaard right where he belonged), I'd be getting a soaring symphony that charms you right from the beginning and never loses its appeal. Branco doesn't fuss about his ideas, he just churns them out to keep the whole work moving. Great disc!
