Elbio Barilari

Since 2012, Fiesta! has been WFMT’s prized platform for the sound, culture, and history of classical music in Latin America. Every week, Uruguayan-born composer, performer, and professor Elbio Barilari shares his passion for works ranging from little-known Baroque treasures to the most exciting “fresh ink” from living Latin American Composers from across the world. Tune in for a two-hour Fiesta! special to commemorate Hispanic Heritage Month.
