Description

Karin Cuéllar Rendón, 

Karin Cuellar Rendon is a Bolivin violinist specialising in Historical Performance at the Royal Academy of Music. She is currently a beneficiary of both the San Marino and the Vincent Meyer scholarships and is pursuing an Advanced Diploma under the guidance of Maggie Faultless. 

Pedro Ximenez Abrill Tirado is a Peruvian-Bolivian compose of the end of the 18th century and beginning of the 19th century. He is one of the biggest exponents of the Classical and early Romantic styles in South America, for which he has been compared with W. A. Mozart. Ximenez' music however, incorporates folkloric elements from Peruvian and Bolivian traditional music into a predominantly European music aesthetic.  
Hist work therefore has become an important source for the study of the music scene in South America in the time of the early Republics.
