Camargo Guarnieri, Brazilian Composer: A Study of His Creative Life and Works
"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
