Summary
A wealthy Mexican traveler journeys to eighteenth-century Venice, where he meets Vivaldi, Handel and Scarlatti
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Novela que gira en torno a la concepcion de la opera «Montezuma» de Antonio Vivaldi ­la primera que toma como tema el Nuevo Mundo y en la que, ademas, los hombres de America desempenan un papel lleno de nobleza­, CONCIERTO BARROCO tiene como telon de fondo el encuentro entre dos continentes. Omnipresente a lo largo de la obra, la musica ­una de las disciplinas mas queridas y dominadas por Alejo Carpentier (1904-1980)­, no solo articula la fabula y le sirve de medio y vehiculo, sino que adquiere al cabo en la obra un papel casi demiurgico, como lenguaje que funde en una misma realidad ­realidad maravillosa­ tiempos y espacios, y hace confluir en ella a maestros antiguos y modernos de uno y otro lado del Atlantico.
