Dom Pedro I was the first Emperor of Brazil, proclaiming it's independence from Portugal in 1822. A gifted musician, Pedro I is one of only a few monarchs to have become known as a composer. A performance of his Abertura ('Overture') was organized in Paris in 1832 with some in the audience convinced that it had been composed by Rossini, while the Hino da Independênciado Brasil ('Hymn to the Independence of Brazil') remains one of the country's best-loved anthems. Operatic in character, the Te Deum celebrated the baptism of Pedro's first son, and the joyous Credo is one of his most frequently performed works.
