      Manuel de Elías (b. 1939)

      México is, and always has been, one of the powerhouses in Latin American music. Starting at the Colonial period, many solid European composers were enticed to go to the New Spain (as the country was known by then) to teach and to be in charge of musical activities in cathedrals such of those of Mexico City, Puebla, Oaxaca or Durango. Manuel de Zumaya (1678-1755) was one of the most brilliant baroque composers born in this side of the Atlantic and whistands comparation with any of his peers in Europe in the same period.

      However the biggest names on Mexican concert music are, of course, Manuel Ponce, Carlos Chávez and Silvestre Revueltas, joined more recently by Mario Lavista, the country’s more prestigious living composer. However, since the late 19th century and up to the present time, Mexico has produced several generations of magnificent composers. In this program we feature Federico Ibarra, Leonardo Coral. Manuel de Elías and the aforementioned Mario Lavista.
