I'd not heard even one note of music from Cláudio Santoro, so I went with this recording of his Fifth and Seventh symphonies. Both works sound close to European symphonies of the era (the 50s), though Santoro throws in Brazilian percussion and, more importantly, a rhythmic swagger not often found in music from the Old World. The Fifth is darker hued overall, and the Seventh, written to commemorate the new capital of Brasilia, has more boogie throughout, and more color. It's the better of the two symphonies, and both are good enough to hope that all of the composer's symphonies get recorded. Superb playing and fully up to snuff modern sound.
