This recording focuses on Claudio Santoro’s output from the 1960s – a significant decade in the composer’s ever-eventful life. It features world premiere recordings of his charged Cello Concerto, fuelled by his experiences in East Berlin, the dramatic Eighth Symphony and the encore piece One Minute Play, alongside Três Abstrações and Interações Assintóticas, Santoro’s only work to use quarter-tone tuning.

I knew nothing of Santoro’s music until I began listening to these releases in the Naxos Music of Brazil series. Recently a number of his Symphonies and other works have been released and here No 8, from 1963, is placed alongside the slightly earlier Cello Concerto and three other works from the same decade. Another informative and enjoyable production.
