    South American Classical Music

    Watching 'The Proms' one night on BBC television I had the pleasure in seeing and listening to the Venezuelan Youth Orchestra. They played a sample of South American Classical Music. I did not write down any of the composers.
    Can any one suggest a selection to listen to? Thank you.

    I'd suggest going to the BBC website. I'll bet the program is listed there somewhere.

    Ah yes, Astor Piazzolla - his music is the perfect introduction to the passionate Tango dance form, especially the Argentinian version - wow!!!
