Manuel Ponce

Host Candice Agree presents Mexico’s Manuel Ponce 

Manuel María Ponce was one of the great geniuses of Mexican music. An avid musicologist, Ponce used his vast collection of traditional Mexican folksongs in his romantic works, a synthesis he thought crucial for his country’s cultural evolution. Featured are the 24 guitar preludes, romantic pieces for piano, as well as Concierto del Sur, perhaps his best-known work.
