Carlos Colón Quintana Collection

The Colón Quintana Collection was donated to the LAMC in August 1993 by Guatemalan pianist and composer Carlos Armando Colón Quintana.  The donation consists of a collection of scores by Central American composers Roque Cordero, Igor de Gandarias, Manuel Herrarte, Joaquín Marroquín, José Porfirio González Alcantara, and Enrique Solares. Most of the works included in this collection are for solo piano, with the exception of several works for solo guitar, one for cello and piano, and one for strings, all by Enrigue Solares, and one work for violin and piano by José Porfirio González Alcantara.
