Listening now to Twenty Estudos of Brazilian composer Camargo Guarnieri (1907--1993) on WKCR 89.9 FM NY. No Wikipedia entry or satisfactory biographical/overview website about him that I could find in my initial searching, so I am making some notes here for myself. The etudes are interesting---flowing repetitions and variations of melodies over these almost staccato bass lines. Certainly 20th-century sounding, but harking back to an earlier---perhaps Romantic---era.
