Alvaro Guevara has composed numerous works, primarly for pianoforte solo, and also Symphonic works for piano and orchestra, including several published songs in a romantic genre, like "Solamente Tu". His music, as he explains it, is Neo-Romantic. His inspirations, in a nutshell, are: love and beauty. His mentors in music are Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Wagner. His motto in life and music is simply: "Pulchrum est Paucorum Hominum".
Alvaro Guevara y Vazquez was born in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico to a family of intellectuals, artists and merchants. He is mainly an autodidact with respects to music, but studied piano with Ruth van Birkhoff of Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., and Professor Jesus Alvarado, a student of an American pupil of russian composer, Sergei Rachmaninoff. His many interests are not limted to music, but range from the study of Judeo/Christian religion, world and European history, political science, culinary arts and philosophy, Friedrich Nietzsche being his mentor.
