VICENTE EMILIO SOJO  

(1887 - 1974)

Vicente Emilio Sojo is considered as the pioneer and fountainhead of the modern school of Venezuelan music. He first studied music in his birthplace, Guatire, with Régulo Rico, and then moved to Caracas in 1910 where he had composition lessons with Primo Moschini. In 1921 he became professor of theory at the National School of Music and was appointed as its director in 1936. He later entered politics, being elected as a senator in 1958 and 1963 for the state of Miranda. Sojo’s compositions include a quantity of choral music, a string quartet (1913), and many guitar pieces. He also collected together a considerable amount of Venezuelan traditional songs and dances.
