Faria Gomes: Chamber Works
Format: COMPACT DISC
Picado, Saul; Santos, Carla; Thurlow, Sarah; Fernandes, Miguel; Johnson, Nancy
This selection of chamber music by leading Portuguese composer Pedro Faria Gomes was written between 2007 and 2018. The works encompass themes of memory, change and waiting, with the concept of time being a central preoccupation. Though he has drawn on music from his country’s folk traditions – in Memória and in the Sonata – it is always with new harmonic insights and subtlety, creating undeniably invigorating additions to contemporary chamber music repertoire.
