Frederico de Freitas was one of Portugal’s most prolific composers, whose highly successful ballets are inspired by local folklore and romance. The Silly Girl’s Dance is a work of exuberant musical vitality about a timid village girl who turns out to be the loveliest of them all. The Wall of Love describes innocent amorous encounters, the Medieval Suite conjures ‘the fragrance of medieval Portuguese poetry’, while dances, songs and ‘fiestas’ are evoked in the lively Ribatejo.
 

"...These pieces are tuneful, colorful, largely cheerful, and very well crafted... The sound of these recordings, made in Glasgow in August 2012, is fine ... there’s a warmth and solidity that flatters the music and gratifies the ear."

Lawrence Hansen - American Record Guide - January/February 2014


"... Cassuto and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra have teamed up previously, on other releases devoted to Portuguese music. Together, they are an excellent combination. The conductor clearly knows how to convey what is interesting and enjoyable about this music, and the orchestra plays it expertly, and with zest ..."

Raymond Tuttle - Fanfare - September/October 2013


"...Cassuto and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra are obviously on the same wave-length and the orchestra clearly enjoys itself in these colourful, unpretentious but entertaining scores. I have already returned to this lovely disc of refreshingly enjoyable music repeatedly, were it only as an antidote to the grey skies over our heads and in our hearts. Do not hesitate: go for it and you will feel much better."
