Carlos Chávez received formal training as a pianist, but was largely self-taught as a composer. His formative years coincided with a time of intense nationalism in Mexico brought about by the end of the Mexican revolution. His investigation into Indian cultures, native folk music and dance forms were of significant influence in his music, which was characterized by a highly distinctive use of cross-rhythms, syncopation, irregular meter and colorful orchestration.
