A tough flow with lots of tricky poses. This is one you’ll want to come back to over and over to keep refining your practice.
Portugal 1938. Pereira is the editor of the culture section of the Lisboa, an unaffiliated evening paper. There is civil war in Spain and the fascists are in power in Portugal, but he concerns himself only with his work (writing biographies of famous writers and translating French novels) and ignores what is going on around him. He hires Monteiro Rossi, an idealistic young man in love with a beautiful communist, as an assistant. He reluctantly helps them when they begin to get into trouble due to subversive activities. Eventually events force him to take a stand.
Hi buddies!. Here you are the first recording of Braga Santos' 4th symphony, recorded in the late 70's under conductor Silva Pereira, who, with the also portuguese conductor Alvaro Cassuto, are the main champions of this excellent music. Joly Braga Santos was the most important symphonist in Portugal during the XX century, and many people say he was the best iberian symphonist of the last century. Of course there were not too many iberian symphonists and maybe competitivity was not really hard, but despite of all, here you have the proof to agree or not with that opinion... In my humble opinion, mmm yes, maybe he was :P I prefer the modern recording by Casutto with no added choir ate the end (it was suggested by Pereira to the composer), despite he is lively in the rest of the symphony. Stereo sound is ok, if not like Unicorn vinyls because Electrecord rumanian pressings are far from perfect, but it's still audible, so please.. Enjoy!
