Luis de Freitas Branco - Symphony 1

Freitas Branco (1890-1950) was a Portuguese composer, whose rather romantic initial style (Franck with a dash of Debussy) was out of touch with its times. That said, his works are accomplished and great to listen to, especially his four symphonies. I chose his first symphony from 1924. Relevant links below.
