The Venezuelan composer, Antonio Estévez, wrote Cantata Criolla in 1954, his best known work. It is based on a legendary Venezuelan poem by Alberto Arevalo Torrealba, which recounts a singing competition between Florentino, a peasant, and the Devil. Estévez made it clear that his adaptation of the myth of Faust focused, above all, on a spiritual dispute. It has become one of the most important pieces of Latin American music, and is tonight directed by Giancarlo Guerrero, a conductor of great vitality and enormous vigour.
