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.


   




Review By David Hurwitz,ClassicsToday.com,September 2013

As with previous issues in this ongoing series of Portuguese music, the performances under Álvaro Cassuto aren’t likely to be bettered. This is all the more remarkable when you consider that all four works were recorded in just two days of sessions, a “rehearse and record” scenario that’s also a tribute to the professionalism of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. They could not have known this music beforehand, but they play it with impressive confidence. Worth collecting. © 2013 ClassicsToday.com Read complete review
