Carlos Chavez and His World by Leonora Saavedra

Carlos Ch?vez (1899–1978) 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, Ch?vez was an integral part of the emerging music scene in the United States in the 1920s. His highly individual style—diatonic, dissonant, contrapuntal—addressed both modernity and Mexico's indigenous past. Ch?vez was also a governmental arts administrator, founder of major Mexican cultural institutions, and conductor and founder of the Orquesta Sinf?nica de M?xico. Carlos Ch?vez and His World brings together an international roster of leading scholars to delve into not only Ch?vez's music but also the history, art, and politics surrounding his life and work.

Contributors explore Ch?vez's 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 York's modernist scene, Mexican symphonic music, portraits of Ch?vez by major Mexican artists of the period, including Diego Rivera and Rufino Tamayo, and Ch?vez's impact on El Colegio Nacional. A quantum leap in understanding Carlos Ch?vez and his milieu, this collection will stimulate further work in Latin American music and culture.

The contributors are Ana R. Alonso-Minutti, Amy Bauer, Leon Botstein, David Brodbeck, Helen Delpar, Christina Taylor Gibson, Susana Gonz?lez Aktories, Anna Indych-L?pez, Roberto Kolb-Neuhaus, James Krippner, Rebecca Levi, Ricardo Miranda, Juli?n Orb?n, Howard Pollack, Leonora Saavedra, Antonio Saborit, Stephanie Stallings, and Luisa Vilar Pay?.
