MÁYNEZ VIDAL, Samuel

Ciudad de México 1962

Mexican composer born on May 15, 1962 in Mexico City. He comes from a family of musicians, which allowed him to start his piano, flute, and cello studies at an early age. He did his post-graduate studies in music composition with Carlos Jiménez Mabarak, and of cello with Guillermo Helguera. He taught in several Mexican cultural institutions, among which the National School of Music in the National Autonomous University of Mexico, where he gave classes in harmony, counterpoint, musical forms, and composition during 13 years. 

Of his musical production for orchestra, piano, and other instruments, what is most noticeable is his work for cello, today considered as one of the most complete, extensive, and important ever written. His work is acknowledged as prestigious and internationally celebrated, as it uses a great variety of technical and expressive resources. It covers from traditional baroque, classic, and romantic forms, to the more versatile technique of Latin genres, characteristic of the Mexican national identity.
