2022 has a common denominator for some APM’s conductors: Brazil.

Claudio Santoro is one of the most celebrated Brazilian composers of all time. Maestro Neil Thomson together with the Orquestra Filarmônica de Goiás recorded this album presenting symphonies number 5 and 7, composed around 1950, a period in which Maestro Santoro sought a more direct and communicative language using many Brazilian elements in his scores.
