The violin and piano repertoire of twentieth-century Latin America : a bibliography with annotations of selected compositions
MetadataShow full item record
This work brings together for the first time a comprehensive list of the violin and piano repertoire of twentieth-century Latin America. Works by composers born in Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America are included. It is an effort to stimulate the performance and publication of works by known and relatively unknown composers. At the same time it provides commentaries on many pieces, examining their structure, character, and usefulness as recital pieces and pedagogical material. Hopefully more scholarly works of a similar nature will follow, since the gathering of materials of countries like Haiti, Bolivia, Paraguay, and Honduras was particularly troublesome. The Latin American violin repertoire is a rich subject which will certainly prove a fertile ground to performers, teachers, and scholars alike.
