listener of Ralph Vaughan Williams, which for me is glorious. There is however, a more "muscular" feel to Braga Santos's music (compared to the Tallis Fantasia for example, which is 100 times the masterpiece yet sonically it's a decent example) and it's extremely rewarding. The rest of the program shows a gradual stylistic change, the "Sinfonietta for Strings" of 1963 for example offers spiky dissonance and denser contrapuntal writing. This progression only continues on with the "Variations Concertantes" for Strings and Harp and the "Concerto for Violin, Cello, Strings and Harp". All four compositions are that of a master, of all periods. Enjoy.
