Podcast: An introduction to Mozart Carmargo Guarnieri

GUARNIERI Piano Concertos Nos 4, 5 and 6Mozart Carmargo Guarnieri is one of the finest Brazilian composers of the 20th century. Unfortunately, except for Naxos recordings, he is all but unknown outside his native country, having been overshadowed by his flamboyant landsman Heitor Villa-Lobos. In this podcast, Latin American music scholar James Melo talks about Guarnieri’s place in Brazilian music, and about his Piano Concertos 4 – 6, which offer an introduction to his music. Musical excerpts feature pianist Max Barros, with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Thomas Conlin.
