M. Camargo Guarnieri
He studied piano and composition in Sao Paulo before going, in 1938, to Paris, where he took a course in composition with Charles Koechlin and one in conducting with Ruhlmann. In 1942 and 1946 he visited the U.S. as a conductor of his own works. He later returned to Brazil, where he taught at various institutions.
His music is permeated with "Brasilidad," a syndrome that is Brazilian in its melody and rhythm; his Dansa brasileira is typical in its national quality.
