Manuel Ponce

December 8, 1882 - April 24, 1948
born in Fresnillo, Mexico, composed during the Modern period
Manuel Ponce (1882-1948) was one of the first Mexican composers to achieve international acclaim, moving from light, popular music into more serious endeavors. Ponce studied within Mexico until he went to Europe in 1904, remaining in Berlin until 1909. Upon his return, he was made a piano professor at the Mexico City Conservatory, and in 1913 wrote the international hit Estrellita. After a stint as conductor, Ponce returned to Europe and studied with Paul Dukas; his later works are in a highly sophisticated vein. Ponce's guitar music, most of it commissioned by Andres Segovia, is of central importance to classical guitar literature. ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi

It's weird I like hardcore rap from the 90s but when I listen to this it makes me calm and now everyday on my way to school I listen to this beautiful music to make me forget about how awful it is to wake up tired and irritated.

Sadly, Mexican society seems to have forgotten this master composer (Manuel M. Ponce).

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the neares possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works.

I havent heard much from him but what I have seems to be somewhat reminiscent of Bach. perhaps an influence from his time in Berlin?
