(1862 - 1952)

The Argentinian composer, conductor and pianist Alberto Williams was born in Buenos Aires and studied there before a period at the Paris Conservatoire, where his teachers included César Franck. Founder of the Conservatorio Williams in his native city, he was associated, also as a teacher, with early Argentinian musical nationalism.

Vocal and Instrumental Music

Williams contributed to the most important musical forms of his time, with nine symphonies, violin sonatas, piano music and a large number of songs. His musical language develops, during his career, from one based on European influences to something more characteristically Argentinian.
