      Stefan Wolpe, composer

      Already in the Baroque period European composers were writing chaconnes and zarabandas, two genres born in Latin America. Frenchmen Bizet, Debussy and Milhaud visited Latino rhythms, as well as Stravinsky and Copland and a myriad  of others. What happens when foreigners embrace the Ibero-American musical traditions?
