New Catalogue of Latin American Cello Music


The new Sphinx Catalog of Latin American Works powerfully dispels the idea that “classical music” is a uniquely European creation. The library, released by the Sphinx Organization, is the most extensive of its kind, with more than 2,200 entries of cello music from Latin American composers ranging from 1783 to the present.

The project launched in 2018 through a partnership between the Sphinx Organization, Dr. German Marcano, and Dr. Horacio Contreras, two internationally active cellists and experts in cello repertoire from Latin America. This resource not only provides new insight into the musical contribution of Latin America, but also creates a way for our Latinx students to find representations of themselves in history and connect their musical identity to the past.
