Staatsorchester Braunschweig

With the present recording, OehmsClassics presents a rarely performed work by the Brazilian composer Antônio Carlos Gomes in co-production with NDR Kultur and the Braunschweig State Theatre. Gomes’ music is of course influenced by Brazil, but its atmosphere is reminiscent of Verdi’s “Simon Boccanegra” in many respects, captivating listeners already at the beginning with extraordinarily effective pieces. This production is the recording of the German premiere at the Braunschweig State Theatre in January 2010.
