Portuguese orchestral music was scarce until the 20th century, when composers were able to build on the great legacy of Lu√≠s de Freitas Branco (see digital single Two Melodies, 9.70326). Ant√≥nio Fragoso died young, and the Concerto rom√Ęnticois a new adaptation of his Suite romantique, orchestrated to reflect influences from Faur√© and early Debussy. Joly Braga Santos's Concerto in D minor is one of his best-loved early works, blending Alentejo folk songs with the sophistication of Vaughan Williams and Walton. S√©rgio Azevedo is renowned for his neo-Classical style, shaping a narrative of darkness to light in the Sinfonietta, and reviving the concerto grosso in his homage to Bart√≥k, the Music for Strings.
