Fiesta! on WUOT

Tuesdays from 8-9 p.m.

Fiesta! is a new, original production devoted to Latino concert music, and brings artistically significant compositions from Latin America, Spain and Portugal to listeners. The acclaimed composer, musician, performer, and professor Elbio Barilari is the host and creative force behind this series.  

Fiesta!, says the Uruguayan-born composer, 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.
