EDUARDO ANGULO (b 1954 )
Eduardo Angulo, born in 1954 in Puebla, Mexico, began his musical studies, aged seven, at the National Music Conservatory, Mexico City where, under the direction of Vladimir Vulfman, he began his training as a violinist. As a young man he featured in chamber music concerts at Carnegie Hall, New York and performed in the World Youth Symphony Orchestra. In 1973, after graduating with high honours from the Mexico City Conservatory, he was awarded a scholarship by the Dutch government to study at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague where, two years later, he was awarded the Prize for Excellence. He stayed on for a further year giving recitals with his string quartet throughout Holland and Germany. On his return to Mexico, Eduardo Angulo dedicated himself to composition, writing symphonic works, chamber and choral music, and concertos for a wide variety of instruments including violin, harp, viola, guitar, harpsichord and flute. His music, mainly written for individual musicians and chamber groups, has been performed in the United States, Europe, and Central and South America, often with the composer in the role of soloist in his own concertos.
