dc.description.abstractThis dissertation focuses on the relationship between Brazilian composer Camargo Guarnieri and American flutist Carleton Sprague Smith, exploring their intersecting lives and the compositions that emerged from their collaboration set against the backdrop of Pan-Americanism. The first part of the dissertation focuses on Smith's interest in Latin America and Brazil in particular, as well as his impressions after his first visit to the country, which are documented in his Musical Tour Through South America. Through this lens, the dissertation explores the role of geopolitics in Smith's commentaries and the ways in which political values such as democracy and authoritarianism were promoted through various channels such as radio broadcasting, cultural institutions, and scholarship exchange. The dissertation then shifts its focus to Camargo Guarnieri, providing a detailed account of his life from his rural roots to his involvement with Pan-Americanism in the 1940s. Through archival research and by examining Guarnieri's correspondence with Smith, Aaron Copland, Luiz Heitor, and Charles Seeger, the dissertation sheds light on the ways in which American representatives perceived Brazil, its supposed racial harmony, and musical stereotypes. Furthermore, the dissertation analyzes the impact of Guarnieri's visits to the United States on his compositional output and demonstrates how certain experiences had a lasting impact on his views on music education and the music industry in Brazil. Finally, this work examines Guarnieri's compositions dedicated to Smith, including Improviso No. 2 for solo flute (1942), Sonatina for flute and piano (1947), and the cantatas Louvação do Amor Êtê (1944), and Colóquio (1959), revealing their collaborative nature and shedding light on their significance in the Brazilian orchestral repertoire.
