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.

“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”
