207 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 1,558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El argumento de Concierto barroco (1974) está basado en un hecho histórico: la composición y estreno en Venecia, en 1773, de una ópera de Vivaldi sobre Montezuma. Atraído por el juego de recursos barrocos que sugiere esta representación escénica, Carpentier nos introduce en un divertimento que relata las peripecias de un indiano que, en compañía de su criado, llega a Europa para buscar instrumentos musicales. Su tema es el encuentro entre dos continentes. Pero aquí la historia también se transfigura e introduce elementos del futuro: Scaelatti y Händel conviven con Stravisnky y Louis Armstrong

Écue-yamba-ó by Alejo Carpentier( Book )

75 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

¡Écue-Yamba-Ó! es la primera novela de Alejo Carpentier y narra la vida de Menegildo Cue, negro cubano en los primeros años del siglo XX. Aunque se ha venido clasificando dentro del cajón desastre llamado «novela afrocubana», lo cierto es que esta obra es una de las más influyentes dentro de su género, y muy reveladora dentro de la producción del autor. Deslumbra y emociona con un crisol de tendencias estilísticas existentes a principios del siglo pasado. Adorna sus detalladas descripciones naturalistas con vanguardistas metáforas del Futurismo. Es una obra fundamental para entender la realidad cubana de inicios de siglo, al propio Carpentier, y una piedra angular dentro de la literatura hispanoamericana
Music in Cuba by Alejo Carpentier( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: A publishing event: the foundational work on Cuban music by a major figure of the twentieth century, now in English for the first time. In the wake of the Buena Vista Social Club, the world has rediscovered the rich musical tradition of Cuba. A unique combination of popular and elite influences, the music of this island nation has fascinated since the golden age of the son and that New World aural collision of Africa and Europe that made Cuban music the rage in Paris, New York, and Mexico beginning in the 1920s. Originally published in 1946 and never before available in an English translation, Music in Cuba is not only the best and most extensive study of Cuban musical history, it is a work of literature in its own right. Drawing on such primary documents as obscure church circulars, dog-eared musical scores pulled from attics, and the records of the Spanish colonial authorities, Music in Cuba sweeps panoramically from the sixteenth into the twentieth century. Carpentier covers European-style elite Cuban music as well as the popular worlds of rural Spanish folk and urban Afro-Cuban music. In a substantial introduction based on extensive original research, Timothy Brennan explores Carpentier's career prior to the writing of his novels. Looking especially at Carpentier's work as a music reviewer, radio producer, and musical theorist, Brennan suggests new ways of thinking about the role of Latin American artists in Europe between the wars, and the central place of radio and music-club cultures in the European avant-gardes
