Antonio Lauro is one of the most famous composers to come from Venezuela. He has written many works for orchestra, piano, choir, harpsichord, and guitar. He is most well-known for his guitar works, this being his main instrument. The pieces represented in these guitar works are for players at a beginner-intermediate level, and in standard notation only. "El Totumo" is a golpe, a distinctive variant of the Venezuelan Jaropo. "Flores de la Monta‚àö¬±a" is a Venezuelan waltz, and "Cueca Chilena" is a popular Chilean dance which is performed by two dancers who symbolically imitate a cock and a chicken.
