Página Esquecida – Portuguese music for cello and piano

Bruno Borralhinho, cello
Luísa Tender, piano

Catalog number 21054

This recording is entirely dedicated to Portuguese music for solo cello and cello/piano duet. We aim to make this repertoire better known in Portugal and abroad, as it includes some of the most significant Portuguese works of the past and current centuries. By recording this music, we wish to counteract the tendency for Portuguese cello repertoire to be dismissed as a “forgotten page” (Página Esquecida), abroad and even in Portugal. As we continue to honor these and other composers in our live performances, so we also hope our project stimulates the interpretation of Portuguese music by even more musicians.
Bruno Borralhinho & Luísa Tender

“Cellist Bruno Borralhinho and pianist Luísa Tender give utterly persuasive and authoritative readings of uniformly valuable yet virtually unknown music.“
Michael Cameron in fanfare magazine

Christoph von Erffa, violoncello

Alois Bröder is a composer who knows how to bring together intellect and belly in his works. He writes pieces which have to be comprehended well for the open-minded listener. As a trained guitarist he has a faible for this instrument whose possibilities he exhausts. He revives the song accompanied with guitar (in the 19th century often usually), possibly in his both haiku cycles which were recorded with the soprano Eva Lebherz-Valentin, the baritone Martin Hummel and Christopher Brandt and published together with other works as Chamber Music with Guitar.Bröder writes fascinatingly for the respective instruments. The haiku songs are vocal in the disposition and also follow the meaning of the texts. The sounding of the instrumental music is enjoyed thoroughly in an ingenious way, and absorbing connections originate, possibly in the Abbozzi for guitar and piano, whereby the listener is astonished that both instruments fit so well. Similar happens in Drei Spiele for guitar, baritone saxophone and cello.
