(1864 - 1920)

Alberto Nepomuceno occupies an important position as a pioneer of Brazilian music, indebted to his teacher Fonseca, and active in his encouragement of the young Villa-Lobos. A period in Europe brought study in Berlin, lessons with the organist Guilmant in Paris, and contact with Brahms and, significantly, Grieg, one of whose pupils became his wife. He enjoyed a distinguished career in Brazil as a teacher, conductor and composer. His compositions include choral works, songs, operas, chamber and orchestral music.

Piano Music

Nepomuceno’s musical language owes much to European tradition, from which Brazilian music was gradually emerging.
