8/18      Three Latino Mozarts 

There are at least three composers we can relate as the Latin American (and Spanish) “Mozarts”. Two of them were called “Mozarts” by his contemporaries: the 18th’s Chevalier de Saint Georges, born in the French-Caribbean island of Gaudaloupe, and the 19th century SpanishBasque Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga. The third one is the 20th century Brazilian composer Camargo Guarnieri whose first name was Mozart, precisely.
