Oscar Edelstein

Oscar Edelstein (born 12 June 1953) is an original contemporary composer from Argentina. Known for creativity and inventiveness, frequently he is described as leading Latin Americas avant-garde. He is also a pianist, conductor, and researcher.

Edelstein was born in La Paz, in the province of Entre Rios. He spent his childhood in Parana, Entre Rios capital, a city know for its river Parana, South Americas second longest river, and its name drawn from the Tupi language meaning "like the sea" due to its width. Entre Rios is literally the province between rivers and for a short time it was an independent republic a spirit it has maintained to this day and that has had an impact on Edelstein.

Edelstein is from a family of musicians but his father, a road engineer, inspired him also with a love of machines and technology. He triggered Edelstein's desire to compose by a birthday present at the age of five of a Geloso portable tape recorder. It was his first instrument and tool for composition before the piano.
