Juan Bautista Plaza (1898-1965) was one of the most important musicians in thehistory of Venezuela. In addition to composing in a variety of genres and styles, he was the leadingfigure in Venezuelan music education and musicology at a time when his compatriots were seeking tosolidify their cultural identity. Plaza's compositions in the emerging nationalist style and hisefforts to improve musical institutions in his home country parallel the work of contemporaneousLatin American musicians including Carlos Chávez of Mexico, Amadeo Roldán of Cuba, andCamargo Guarnieri of Brazil.

Plaza's life and music are little studied, andLabonville's ambitious book is the first in English to be based on his extensive writings andcompositions. As these and other documents show, Plaza filled numerous roles in Venezuela's musicalinfrastructure including researcher, performer, teacher, composer, promoter, critic, chapel master,and director of national culture. Labonville examines Plaza's many roles in an attempt to assess howthe nationalist spirit affected art music culture in Venezuela, and what changes it brought toVenezuela's musical landscape.
