Bomtempo Sonatas Cd review 2019

The pianist Luísa Tender may not be familiar to many readers, but if this recording is your first encounter, like me I am sure you will be very impressed.​

She is a professor of piano at the Escola Superior de Artes Aplicadas in Castelo Branco, Portugal, with a wide musical interest from J S Bach to contemporary Portuguese composers.

Cd review 2019

To help place the Portuguese composer Joao Domingos Bomtempo in time, consider the following: he was born in Lisbon sixteen years after the great earthquake.​

His life overlapped the Napoleonic incursion into Portugal and the absence of the Portuguese royal family in Brazil; he dwelt for a time in London, returning to Lisbon from time to time during 1815-1821.
