Josť Manuel Joly Braga Santos (24/05/1924 - 18/07/1988), a Portuguese composer (born in Lisbon). He is underrated, indeed virtually unknown. Happily, this is changing quickly, thanks in large part to the efforts of the Marco Polo label, which is issuing many of his works in a continuing series. Joly Braga Santos came of age during the mid-20th century, and his work reflects the great aesthetic changes underway at the time; from the tuneful bonhomie of Joly's early Romantic works to the controlled, Schoenberg-style dissonance of his later pieces (though Joly, like Schoenberg, never entirely abandoned his Romantic roots).
