With this recording OehmsClassics presents a rarely performed work by the Brazilian composer Antônio Carlos Gomes in co-production with NDR Kultur and the Staatstheater Braunschweig. Gomes’ music is of course Brazilian-influenced, but atmospherically it reminds in many ways of Verdi’s “Simon Boccanegra” and captivates the listener from the very beginning with extraordinarily effective pieces. This production is the premiere recording of the German premiere from the Staatstheater Braunschweig in January 2010.
