Description: Keil was perhaps more famous in his native Portugal as a painter than as a composer although he did produce four operas, a cantata and a couple of symphonic poems in addition to the many songs and piano pieces of a refined salon style. It is these latter from which the program of this 1999 recording is selected. Portuguese/French texts. Ana Ferraz (soprano), Gabriela Canavilhas (piano)
