León Biriotti's forgotten corner
« on: July 02, 2021, 02:44:17 PM »
León Biriotti (1929-2020) was a Uruguayan composer, oboist and conductor. He studied with Enrique Casal Chapi, Alberto Ginastera and attended György Ligeti's Darmstadt lectures. He composed more than 111 works but few have made it to performance or record. His musical periods go from modernist avant-garde to postmodernism.

An incredible 2015 performance of his first opera "Rashomon" can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSD3V891lGc
