The interpretations are just as good as the recording, so that this production can be recommended without hesitation.

The Music of Brazil series. Edino Krieger (1928–2022) was a leading figure in Brazilian music as both composer and arts director who influenced a generation of his compatriots during his long life. Neil Thomson conducts the Goiás Philharmonic Orchestra in an album of works from Krieger’s final creative phase, considered his peak of artistic maturity. Fanfarra e Sequências is a world premiere recording.

REVIEW:

As the booklet included with this release states, Brazilian composer Edino Krieger's work moved from serial to neoclassical to a synthesis of traditionalism and avant-garde. Listeners should not be put off by the kitschy Fanfarra e Sequencias. The largely neoclassical Variações Elementares is already more interesting and much better music. Canticum Naturale can be described as a tone poem about the Amazon. The very modern-sounding, cluster-like Estro Armonico leads to the likewise modern (but quite accessible) and highly dramatic Tres Imagens de Nova Friburgo. The longest piece, Ludus Symphonicus, is expressive and variedly structured, as well as tonally effective. Krieger certainly knew how to make an orchestra sound good.

The interpretations are just as good as the recording, so that this production can be recommended without hesitation.
