(1884 - 1914)

The parentage of Glauco Velásquez was generally concealed in his lifetime. He was, however, the illegitimate son of a well-known singer and a woman of good family, who moved from Rio de Janeiro to Naples for the birth of her son, whom she later ‘adopted’. His life was cut short by tuberculosis.

Piano Music

Velásquez gave the first public recital of his compositions in 1911. Writing in a style akin to the French rather than the Romantic German style then favoured in Brazil, he left a number of piano pieces of some interest, principally written during the last eight years of his life.
