CAMARGO GUARNIERI (1907 - 1993)
The son of a father from Sicily and a Brazilian mother, Camargo
Guarnieri established himself as a musician of importance in São
Paulo, before moving in 1938 to Paris for lessons with Koechlin.
In style he belongs to a third generation of Brazilian composers,
after Braga and then Villa-Lobos, with national traits now fully
absorbed into a mature and often passionate musical language.
His completely violinistic sonatas for violin and piano, Nos.
4-6, written in 1956, 1959 and 1965, are a fascinating addition
to duo repertoire.
