(1906 - 1988)

Radamés Gnattali was originally from Porto Alegre, a city in the south of Brazil, where he studied to be a concert pianist. He became instead a successful commercial musician in Rio: beginning in the 1930s, he conducted, played the piano, worked for radio stations, and wrote arrangements of popular music (all the while pursuing a side career as a classical composer). He composed in a style which blended neo-Romanticism, jazz and traditional Brazilian popular music.
