Join Fiesta and guitarist, Eduardo Fernández, as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Uruguayan composer and pianist Lamarque Pons.  Pons was a multitalented composer and musician who began his musical career studying piano and violin at the age of 8. When Pons moved to Montevideo to further his education, he began making money as a pianist playing in cabarets, coffee houses, and movie theaters. Finding musical pleasure in both popular and classical music, Pons wrote music influenced by both genres. He went on to compose music for film, ballet, piano, and orchestra. Host, Elbio Barilari, will share some of his favorite works by this little known composer.
