Frederico de Freitas (1902-1980) was one of the most important musical figures of 20th century Portugal: a composer, conductor (founder of the Portuguese radio orchestra), writer, teacher and instrumentalist (piano, violin).
His early compositions are inspired by the musical trends of the time (polyrhythms and polytonality). He later developed a more classical style, in which his own harmonic language (augmented modality) and the inspiration of his countryís rich folk music tradition are the most important elements.
This CD contains de Freitasí complete works for violin and piano - music of a rich originality, worthy to discover and cherish.
Portuguese violinist Carlos Damas is a strong advocate of this music: sensuous tone, intimacy and passion, perfectly suited to the musicís mood. Pianist Jill Lawson is an excellent partner, the duo having already successfully recorded for Brilliant Classics (Antonio Fragoso, works for violin and piano, BC 94158).
The booklet contains excellent liner notes by Ivan Moody.
