Harry Lamott Crowl  (1958-)
Last updated: 19.08.20
According to the Internet source given below, Harry Lamott Crowl, Jr. is a Brazilian composer and musicologist was born in Belo Horizonte. He studied both violin and viola in his native town and composition at the Juilliard School of Music, New York with Charles Jones. Further composition studies with Peter Sculthorpe in Dartington, England with a grant from the British Council.
As a composer, he developed a very personal and independent style. The unpredictable connections of ideas by composers like Heitor Villa-Lobos, Charles Ives and other lesser known as Revueltas and Ruggles have always attracted him. The composer also found some non linear procedures in the compositions of early Brazilian and Portuguese composers. Such observations were possible due to the many years of musicological research devoted to Brazilian colonial music. These two sources, altogether with a strong will of writing in a personal style, that would make a point of view different from most composers from both Europe and US, allowed him to forge a very eloquent musical language. Most of his pieces are conceived as some kind of a musical panel. Most musical ideas are never repeated. His recorder works include:
  • Hottetterriana, solo Recorders (1981)
  • Un Pájaro de Papel en El Pecho dice que El Tiempo de Los Besos no ha Llegado, for recorders and tape (1986)
  • Revoada, for solo Recorders (1994)
