Description: Dating from just before his Preludes, Freitas Branco's sonata (1913) is a four-movement piece of around 24 minutes in which a few Impressionistic vapors waft across a virile and often virtuosic late Romantic landscape. Lopes-Graça shows his lyrical side in the 1955 "Forgotten Page", the only surviving fragment of an old, unfinished cello concerto he'd started for Guilhermina Suggia; the songs are transcriptions of 1947-49 voice and piano pieces and the Adagio and Danza transcriptions of two piano preludes while a noble, Bachian austerity is present in the two late solo cello suites (1961 and 1973). Jed Barahal (cello), Christina Margotto (piano).
