The WFMT Radio Network
Fiesta! with Elbio Barilari
The WFMT Radio Network is pleased to continue our offering of one-hour series of Fiesta!, with Uruguayan-born composer and host Elbio Barilari.
Fiesta! is a new, original production devoted to Latino concert music, and brings artistically significant compositions from Latin America, Spain and Portugal to your listeners.
The acclaimed composer, musician, performer, and professor Elbio Barilari is the host and creative force behind this series. He invites listeners to enjoy and learn about the lively and compelling sounds of Latin American classical music.
Fiesta! provides a valuable platform for the sound, culture, and history of classical music in Latin America. Barilari enriches our listeners by introducing them to a genre that does not typically receive much exposure. Fiesta! fosters an appreciation for Latin American classical music and creates a meeting place for listeners of diverse backgrounds.
Fiesta!, says the Uruguayan-born composer Elbio Barilari, features the hottest Latin-American music from the 16th to the 21st centuries. Mr Barilari, a faculty member of the University of Illinois at Chicago, is at the helm for this trip through the hidden pleasures of Latino concert music, including the magical rhythms of Silvestre Revueltas and Heitor Villa-Lobos and the power of symphonic tango. Plus, the series shares little-known treasures from the Latin-American Baroque, and celebrates classical guitar through the music of Agustin Barrios, Antonio Lauro, and Leo Brouwer.
Fiesta! is available free of charge to all stations for 1 broadcast!
