Fiesta! on air: every Wednesday at 2 PM on KCPB
Making waves since 1983
“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.
