Light music from Armando Carrera (1899-1949) who made a living as a pianist for silent films.
Also posted some light valses from Rodolfo Lucero.

Cheers

This is again thankfully and readily available at the University of Chile and the National Library of Chile.
Here are some substancial works from chilean composers of the 20th century.
Diana pey (1922-1988) was born in spain. Her family made refuge in Chile after the Spanish Civil War and was teaching at the Chilean Conservatory until she was exiled from Chile (pinochet regime) to Miami, USA.

Juan Orrego Salas (1919-2019) was born in Santiago, Chile. He began his studies in composition in Chile with Pedro Humberto Allende and Domingo Santa Cruz. His music came to the attention of American composer Aaron Copland with whom he subsequently studied at Tanglewood in 1946 along with a group of Latin American composers that also included Roque Cordero, Alberto Ginastera, Julián Orbón and Héctor Tosar.

Becerra-Schmidt (1925-2010) was born in Temuco, studied in Santiago, and lived in Germany since 1973, where he taught at Oldenburg University since 1974. Becerra was a prolific Chilean composer. His catalogue includes hundreds of compositions that goes from the most traditional to the most avant-garde, from popular songs to large scale cantatas, symphonies and oratorios.

Carlos Botto (1923-2004) studied with Gustavo Becerra Schmidt, Juan Orrego Salas and Domingo Santa Cruz.

Carmela Makenna (1879-1962) was the aunt of composer Alfonso Leng. She studied music theory with Bindo Paoli in Santiago and continued her studies in piano and composition with Conrad Ansorge and Hans Mersmann in Berlin. in 1934 she made her debut as a composer in Berlin with Concerto for Piano and Orchestra. She was successful as both a pianist and composer in Europe, and is identified with expressionist style.

Cirilo Vila (1937-2015) studied composition with Alfonso Letelier (1954-1958) and Gustavo Becerra-Schmidt. Vila compositions were mixed. In popular music, this included transcriptions of songs by Víctor Jara and songs composed for the group Quilapayún. In the area of scholarly or experimental music, he has composed countless works premiered at major festivals of contemporary music in the country.
