There are three Latino composers who have often been compared to Mozart. Two of them were called “Mozart” by their contemporaries: Chevalier de Saint Georges, born in the French-Caribbean island of Guadeloupe in the 18th century and the 19th century composer Spanish-Basque Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga. The third is the 20th century Brazilian composer Camargo Guarnieri whose first name was actually, Mozart.
