Description: You'll be interested in this for the Tavares, a 22-minute work which is "in the style" of rather that an employer of Brazilian folk music styles (the three movements are Modinha, Ponteio and Maracatu). No recording dates are given for anything on this re-issue label but, unlike the Spanish Rhapsody, which is a bit grisly, the Tavares sounds like a perfect transfer of an original 1950s mono studio recording and the Concierto fantastico is in rather wide and detailed stereo. Felicja Blumental (piano).
