Description: Straight from the heart of, yes, Berlin, comes this potted history of 20th century Brazilian nationalism. Everything is tonal and approachable but the real stand-out might be the 14-minute 1926 Turuna whose addition of percussion to his trio of instruments conveys a raw, popular authenticity to his Seresteiro, Saudoso and Mandinga. Portuguese texts. Adriane Queiroz (soprano), Members of the Deutsche Oper Berlin. SACD hybrid
