Mexican Modernists


This week’s offering from the archives of the Bard Music Festival celebrates the music of two seminal composers from south of the border: Carlos Chávez and Silvestre Revueltas. In times of political uncertainty, they fused the rich indigenous heritage of Mexico with modernist techniques and a political message, creating an art that was national, modern, and universal.
