  • Program
The highly evocative and beautiful style that is characteristic of so much of Latin American classical music during the 20th century is perhaps best known in the United States through the highly nationalistic music of Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos and Argentinean composers Alberto Ginastera and Anton Piazzolla. Maria Jette is joined by pianist Sonja Thompson, Fritz Gearhart (violin), Kristen Halay (flute), Martha Griffith (harp), and guitarists Peter Thomas and Ricardo Cardeñas for an evening of songs and dances by these composers and by Camargo Guarnieri (Brazil), Montserrat Campmany (Argentina), Alfonso Broqua (Uruguay), Joaquin Silva-Diaz (Venezuela), and Carlos Chavez (Mexico). In a program filled with beautiful unknowns will be the more familiar, of special note being Villa-Lobos’ playful Suite of voice and violin (1923) and Piazzolla’s ever-intriguing Histoire du tango (c. 1970s).
