ABOUT MANUEL M. PONCE

Manuel María Ponce y Cuéllar (1882-1948) was one of Mexico’s greatest and most prolific composers. He is most widely known for his guitar compositions commissioned by the famed concert guitarist Andrés Segovia of Spain, but he left behind an important body of music for piano (a concerto, concert etudes, mazurkas, sonatas, rhapsodies), symphony orchestra, chamber ensembles and voice.
