      Latin America has long history of “concert” music that started in the 16th century. However, it is possible to say that the 20th has been THE century of Latin American music. Many of the most intense and valuable musical works of the past century have been written by composers such as Manuel Ponce, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Carlos Chávez, Silvestre Revueltas, Alberto GInastera and Leo Brouwer, among others.
