Notes & Reviews:

Mozart Camargo Guarnieri was the most important Brazilian composer next to Villa-Lobos. Guarnieri's piano music embodies his most distinctive stylistic features. One of his most beloved works, the Dança Negra shares folk-music inspiration with the Suite Mirim . The Ponteios are characterized by an enormous variety of Brazilian music styles and moods, and the Sonata can be seen as a summary of Guarnieri's musical personality. Max Barros's "unfaltering brio and a complete command of the idiom" (Gramophone) can also be heard in Guarnieri's Piano Concertos.

I think it is the amalgamation of genres that makes the music so interesting. Guarnieri might take a rhythmic pattern typically associated with ragtime, add irregular accents to it, a Brazilian folk melody and harmonies that could have come from Ravel or Debussy.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
The 1972 Sonata is in three movements totaling 16 minutes and follows the standard fast-slow-fast pattern. It's somewhat more astringent and chromatic than the Ponteios, with some Bartokian spikiness in I, strongly contrasted by II's atmospheric meanderings. III, a driving three-voice fugue enclosed by a plangent slow introduction that returns for a triumphant reprise to finish the work, is for me the highlight of the program.
