Catalogue Number: 09R021
Description: First appearance on CD of music by this Portuguese composer who, like some other of his compatriots, had a period of study in Naples. His brightly colored orchestration (loads of wind and brass) is plain to all and his witty and quirky musical style is well discussed in the good notes. Italian-English texts. Monika Mauch (soprano), Ensemble Concentus Peninsulae; Vasco Negreiros.
