Aldemaro Romero
Birth: Mar. 12, 1928
Death: Sep. 15, 2007

Composer, Conductor. Romero is widely considered one of the most talented Spanish-American musicians of the 20th Century. Born in Valencia, Venezuela, Romero began his career as a pianist in nocturnal saloons and dance orchestras. In 1951, he signed contract with RCA Victor to record with a full orchestra, what was to be a very successful album in the "Dinner In..." series, featuring popular Latin American music. In the United States, his fame as arranger/conductor led him to collaborate with popular orchestras and singers, such as Dean Martin, Jerry Lee Lewis, Stan Kenton, Machito and Tito Puente, between others. He then toured extensively, performing in numerous countries such as Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Spain, France, Italy, Russia and Japan. As a conductor, he founded the Caracas Philarmonic Orchestra, of which he was the first Conductor, in 1979. Romero also conducted the London Symphony Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Romanian Radio/TV and the Royal Philarmonic Orchestra. Romero was the creator of a new form of Venezuelan music, known as "New Wave" (Onda Nueva), derived from the joropo and influenced by Brazilian Bossa Nova. During his long career, he was awarded the Peace Prize of the Soviet Intellectuals, the first prize as composer and conductor at Majorca Palms Festival, the Olympic Games Musical Festival in Greece and in the Latin Song Festival of Mexico. In 2000, Romero obtained the National Music Prize of his country. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
