Fiesta! with Elbio Barilari

Tuesdays, 11am

Program Website:,1,41,84

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.

Eduardo Fernandez: The Interpreter and The Composer
Eduardo Fernández is recognized as one of today’s leading guitarists. Born in 1952 in Uruguay, he began his studies of guitar at age 7. His principal teachers were Abel Carlevaro, Guido Santórsola and Héctor Tosar. After being prized in several international competitions, he won the first prize of the 1975 Andrés Segovia Competition in Mallorca (Spain). His New York debut in 1977 won critical accolades, being described as “A top guitarist…Rarely has this reviewer heard a more impressive debut recital on any instrument” (Donal Henahan, The New York Times). His London debut,(1983) resulted in his signing an exclusive recording contract with Decca, a label for which he made 18 recordings. He has also recorded with violinist Alexander Markow, and Japanese guitarist Shin-Ichi Fukuda. Currently, he is an exclusive recording artist of the Oehms Classics label. Fernández plays also, with the same success, in most European countries, in the Far East and Australia, as well as in most countries of Latin America.
He taught at the University’s School of Music in Montevideo, where he is now a fellow researcher,and is in demand for masterclasses and lectures all around the world. Since 2002 he has been conducting every year masterclasses in Germany (“Gitarre und Natur” course, at Erlbach, Vogtland).
