Composers Cláudio Santoro and Ernst Widmer were very active in the Brazilian music scene of most of the twentieth-century, and were responsible for taking the Brazilian contemporary music to foreign stages. Each composed one piece for solo cello towards the end of their careers. Those pieces were analyzed and also re-edited for the purposes of this study. The present document also mentions the influence of Hans-Joachim Koelreutter had over the careers of Widmer and Santoro and thus their importance for the Brazilian cultural movements of the twentieth-century and the importance of all that scenario to the Brazilian academic music programs, as well as creation of new audiences for new music in Brazil.
