Om Carlos Chavez and His World

Carlos Chvez (18991978) is the central figure in Mexican music of the twentieth century and among the most eminent of all Latin American modernist composers. An enfant terrible in his own country, Chvez was an integral part of the emerging music scene in the United States in the 1920s. His highly individual stylediatonic, dissonant, contrapuntaladdressed both modernity and Mexicos indigenous past. Chvez was also a governmental arts administrator, founder of major Mexican cultural institutions, and conductor and founder of the Orquesta Sinfnica de Mxico. Carlos Chvez and His World brings together an international roster of leading scholars to delve into not only Chvezs music but also the history, art, and politics surrounding his life and work.Contributors explore Chvezs vast body of compositions, including his piano music, symphonies, violin concerto, late compositions, and Indianist music. They look at his connections with such artistic greats as Aaron Copland, Miguel Covarrubias, Henry Cowell, Silvestre Revueltas, and Paul Strand. The essays examine New Yorks modernist scene, Mexican symphonic music, portraits of Chvez by major Mexican artists of the period, including Diego Rivera and Rufino Tamayo, and Chvezs impact on El Colegio Nacional. A quantum leap in understanding Carlos Chvez and his milieu, this collection will stimulate further work in Latin American music and culture.The contributors are Ana R.
