A Brazilian composer, Heitor Villa-Lobos was born in RIO DE JANEIRO IN 1887. He became perhaps the most significant musical figure of Latin America. He wrote orchestral music, as well as chamber, instrumental, and songs for the voice. His strongest suit, as far as I'm concerned, was his lyrical use of the acoustic guitar, for which he composed many pieces. He also played guitar quite well, and always seemed to be clutching his ubiquitous cigar. He died in 1959 at the age of 72. Music is his "Prelude #3 in A Minor," followed by "Prelude #4 in E Minor."
