Santoro: Symphonies Nos. 5 & 7 - Claudio Santoro was one of Brazil's most eminent and influential composers. Over a 50-yearperiod, he wrote a cycle of 14 symphonies that is widely acclaimed as the most significant cycle of it's kind ever written in Brazil. The two selected works in this inaugural volume of the first complete recording of his symphonies focus on the 1950s, a period when Santoro sought a more direct and communicative idiom using Brazilian elements. His use of folk-based material is nonetheless highly creative, sometimes indeed abstract, as in key moments of SymphonyNo. 5. SymphonyNo. 7is one of his most complex and intense works, a celebration of his country's new capital Brasília in music of striking modernity.
