Amor De Mayo by Guillermo Venegas Lloveras (1915-1993)
Guillermo Venegas Lloveras was born in Quebradillas. Quebradillas is a small town on the north coast of Puerto Rico. Guillermo composed boleros, waltzes, tangos, marches, danzas, and his favorite, classical. In his youth he dedicated his time to popular music and art songs, as composer, guitar player and singer. Piano professor Margarita Van Rhyn, when he was barely 22 years old, said his art songs were at the level of Schumann and Schubert. In the later years of life the music of Guillermo was in general (with some exceptions) classical in nature. Highlights of his later years were the recordings that were made and two full house concerts concerts of his music at Puerto Rico’s major concert theaters, the Centro De Bellas Artes and the theater of the University of Puerto Rico and a two hour television special of his music produced by renown opera tenor Ricardo Ledesma.
