"Shortly before his death, Guarnieri had the opportunity to read the biographical chapter of this work and was very touched. He declared that nobody had ever written about his life with such fidelity. This [book] will be of enormous value to people in the English-speaking world who want to know more about Brazilian music and about Camargo Guarnieri." —Vera Silvia Guarnieri, widow of the composer

"Marion Verhaalen has devoted many years of single-minded scholarship to the music of Camargo Guarnieri and has written a biography of unique insights and perceptions into the composer's life and music." —David Appleby

Camargo Guarnieri (1907–1993) was one of the most important contemporary Brazilian composers for voice, orchestra, and piano. This book provides the first comprehensive overview of his life and works in English, along with a CD compilation of representative works.
