I must thank Ruxandra Cesereanu for this recommendation; she’s madly in love with the book and she’s mentioned it several times on her blog. It was a delicious reading, especially since it took me two years to find the book.

It’s hard to find this book in English translation, but if you do, read it you may find it translated but nevertheless under its Spanish title “Concierto Barroco,” as I did.
It’s a baroque concerto in the form of a novel.

The writing of Concirrto sometimes to somebody that do not read hardly is heavy A pesar que el lenguaje es algo complejo o la narrativase lee bastante bien y es muy divertido.
Surely the oddest thing I’ve read by Carpentier. It perhaps doesn’t have the resonance of his best work, carpentiet it’s still pretty cool.
It amazes me that it’s obscure enough that the cover of the English version–which, for the record, is Fernando Botero’s painting “Dancing in Columbia”–isn’t available on this site. Alejo Carpentier tem um estilo bastante peculiar e bem trabalhado. Jan 08, Regina Andreassen rated it liked it.
It was okay but it is probably more enjoyable in its original language, cconcierto one day I will read carpentiwr in Spanish. Now, however, I have yet to read many other books written by what I consider more prolific authors before I venture to read another of Carpentier’s works again.

Carpentier writting style is hard to understand because of his vocabulary, though his style and detailed descriptions are perfect For the story of this book.
I Found very amusing the Moctezuma opera and the conquer of Mexico through Vivaldi eyes.
Definitely, a great book. I rate this book a 3. Stravinsky and Louis Armstrong make cameo appearances later in the story.
Churrigueresque in styl I rate this book a 3. Churrigueresque in style, the book is a veritable dictionary of baroque architecture, music, and daily life describing along the way such mundanities as the luggage and clothing used during that period. The spectacular flights of fancy and literary virtuosity are interwoven with the theme of marvelous America. We should remember that for Carpentier, the marvelously real is not just a stylistic gimmick, it is the essential characteristic of America.
In this book we experience the encounter between American and Europe depicted as the clash between the fabulous past Europe and the marvelous future Americaplayed out in the staging of an opera by Vivaldi about Montezuma. And yes, Vivaldi really did write an opera about Montezuma which had been lost until and was first performed again in At the time Carpentier wrote this book, he know about the opera from historical accounts but could not have heard it. Feb 17, J. Not really a novel, instead it is a musicologist’s fan fiction of a Mexican criollo attending a jam session between Vivldi, Handel and Scarlatti.
There is no conflict, characters are flat and the conversations are pedantary for the music snob, but without the wit it takes no great intellect or real knowledge to declare Vivaldi one of the greats.
This isn’t to say that the vivid descriptions aren’t beautifully rendered–they are–but rather one would expect much more from a writer of Carpentier’ Not really a novel, instead it is a musicologist’s fan fiction of a Mexican criollo attending a jam session between Vivldi, Handel and Scarlatti.
This isn’t to say that the vivid descriptions aren’t beautifully rendered–they are–but rather one would expect much more from a writer of Carpentier’s caliber.
Pyszna, magiczna, dowcipna i przebogata proza. Aug 10, Mihai added it. Un fel de Midnight in Paris, in sensul de amalgam hipsteresc de personaje, opere si momente din trecut, adunate doar de dragul de a bifa cunostinte culturale. Saritul prin epoci istorice diferite, desi interesant initial, devine mult prea lipsit de subtilitate spre final.
M-a cam enervat nuvela asta. Mai lipsea ca autorul sa poarte un tricou ironic si ochelari fara lentila. Am apreciat totusi descrierile foarte vii – ma rog, unele din ele.
A fun novel, that rises interesting questionings in a light tone, Concierto Barroco includes many references to classical music and mixes many subjects whose existence period would be much posterior to the one depicted in it, features that greatly enrich its lyricism and symbolism.
Aug 13, Susana rated it really liked it. The real wonder transported to another dimension where the bizarre is the main feature.
I liked it, though don’t think is recommended for very young people and it was assigned to my high school son so. Guess it’s one of the things that makes kids load reading or school, maybe. Feb 19, Ibis rated it really liked it.
