Riassunto: Antonio Lauro is one of the most famous composers to come from Venezuela. He has written many works for orchestra, piano, choir, harpsichord, and guitar. He is most well-known for his guitar works, this being his main instrument. In the early 1980s he gave concerts in London and Paris at the request of John Williams and Paco Pena. The pieces represented in these guitar works are for players at a beginner-intermediate level, and in standard notation only. The Venezuelan waltz differs from the European waltz in its rhythm which may alternate between 3/4 and 6/8 time and in its more syncopated style. Continuing the 19th Century tradition of other composers of Venezuelan waltzes, Lauro named many of his pieces after people or places. "Maria Luisa" is the name of Lauro's wife. "El Nino" is an elaborate waltz in contrapuntal form dedicated to his son. "Natalia" is the name of his daughter. "El Negrito" is a nickname for Lauro's youngest son.
L'autore: Antonio Lauro is the most famous of all Venezuelan composers. He wrote a large variety of original works, arrangements and transcriptions for the guitar, works for guitar and voice, guitar and harpsichord, duos and trios for guitar, works for piano, choral and orchestral works. His works for guitar have become classics, enriching the repertoire of this instrument with a number of pieces of great importance, influenced by the popular rhyhtms of his native country. His "Venezuelan Valses" which helped to establish his international reputation are now essential and required pieces in many competitions and festivals such as the Alirio Diaz International Guitar Competition. A more complete biography of Lauro can be found in many of the editions of his works. Alirio Diaz is considered to be one of the greatest Venezuelan guitarists in the history of the instrument. He has been an international soloist with the most prestigious orchestras in the world. He has also recorded the principal repertoire for the guitar from the 16th Century to the present, with a particular attention to Spanish, Italian, and Latin American works. He has received numerous awards and honors. Diaz is the founder of Caroni Music, a company whose aim is to promote the splendid and varied musical tradition of his country throughout the world.
