Guido Pikal


Antonio Lauro was born in Ciudad Bolívar, Venezuela. His father was a barber who sang and played the guitar, but he died when Antonio was five years old, and the family moved to Caracas. Antonio studied the piano and composition at the Academia de Música y Declamación, where his teachers included the distinguished composer Vicente Emilio Sojo (1877-1974). A 1932 concert by Agustín Barrios, the legendary Paraguayan guitarist and composer, convinced the young Lauro (already an accomplished folk guitarist) to abandon piano and violin and concentrate upon the guitar. From 1933, he studied with Ral Borges (1888-1967), who introduced him to the traditional classical guitar repertory. In the next decade, Borges pupils would also include Rodrigo Riera, José Rafael Cisneros, and Alirio Díaz, who was responsible for exposing Lauro's works to an international audience and introducing them to the likes of Andrés Segovia and John Williams.
