Luis Gianneo [1897-1968]
« on: August 06, 2016, 07:32:13 AM »
Born and died in Buenos Aires.

from The New Grove:

           Gianneo is acknowledged as a leading Latin American composer and one of the first in Argentina to integrate folk idioms with contemporary musical techniques. He composed 80 works covering all genres (except opera), and he is especially known for his orchestral and chamber music. Gianneo’s early compositions (1923–32) reveal a fascination with the indigenous culture and landscape of northwestern Argentina. Later, he embraced a neo-classical aesthetic (1933–60), and in his final works (1960–68) adapted a dissonant harmonic language and the free use of serialism. His popular symphonic poem, El tarco en flor (1930), pays tribute to the exquisite blooming trees of Tucumán. His Concierto Aymará (1942), based on pentatonic themes, won second prize in an international competition sponsored by the Edwin A. Fleischer Collection. Gianneo’s music has been recorded on historical and contemporary labels (including Preludio, Pampa, Qualiton, Angel, Odeón, Dorian and RCA Camden), and numerous taped copies of his works survive in national and municipal radio archives of Buenos Aires.

The Germans, who make doctrines out of everything, deal with music learnedly; the Italians, being voluptuous, seek in it lively, though fleeting, sensations; the French, more vain than perceptive, manage to speak of it wittily; and the English pay for it . . . - Stendhal

Only a small portion of his works have been issued commercially.
Maybe one day.

There is a selection of his compositions on YT:  https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=LUIS+GIANNEO

from MusicWeb:     Gianneo's Tarco en flor (The dragontree in flower) is a poetic piece inspired by the flowers of Gianneo's home province of Tucuman. Brits will recognise the lachrymose beauty of this music, touched with pastoral Bridge, Hadley and Delius. There's bird-song too but underpinned by heaving Debussian surges and thunderous rhythms (4:37). It's a very impressive piece.

The Argentinian Gianneo, one of the principal founders of the Argentinian national school of composition, was greatly influenced by the folk melodies of the native population of Tucumán province in his native country and this comes out in his tonal, bright and attractive three-movement sonata (1935) as well as in his settings of three characteristic songs and dances.

Yes, but I don't want to. Litters things up.
And I want people to use HTML5, and not Adobe Flashplayer, unless necessary for legacy material.

Stop the madness

Litters things up? As oppose to the Amazon links people post and the picture you posted to accompany your own link above? Not to mention the huge ass covers you posted on this very composer's thread. Please... ::)
