  3. 3. Musical Forms:  Solo – music that is meant to be performed by a single performer.  Orchestral – music that is arranged for and meant to be played by an orchestra. A basic orchestra is composed of four sections of instruments: strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion. 1  Large Work – music that is arranged for a variety of instruments, sometimes including human made sounds (i.e.voice). Performers can even reach up to a thousand.  New Music – originating from the term Neue Musik (German) that was coined by Paul Bekke in 1919. This refers to “contemporary classical/serious music.” 2
  4. 4. Antonio Molina (Music 1973)  He was also known as Claude Debussy of the Philippines due to his use of impressionism in music.  His first composition was “Matinal” in 1912.  Molina’s most familiar composition is “Hatinggabi”, a serenade for a solo violin and piano accompaniment.  Antonio J. Molina (1894-1980), was a Filipino composer, conductor and music administrator who was named a National Artist of the Philippines for his services to music. 3  “Malikmata” – is a mirage, an illusion. This haunting emphatic yet occasionally gentle composition was by Filipino National Artist Antonio Molina. 4
  5. 5. Antonio Buenaventura (Music 1988)  He was born to a family of musicians and actively involved in the band.  He was also a conductor and restored the Philippine Army Band to its former prestige as one of the finest military bands in the world making it "the only band that can sound like a symphony orchestra".  Antonio Buenaventura “Colonel Antonio Buenaventura” was born on May 4 1904 in Baliaug, Bulacan. He inherited his interest in music and military from his father, Lucino Buenaventura. 5  In his compositions, he tries to capture the Filipino spirit as a whole. He also composed short piano pieces to full-length ballets. 6
  6. 6. Lucrecia Kasilag (Music 1989)  Lucrecia Roces Kasilag was born on August 31, 1918 in San Fernando, La Union. Music was introduced to her at an early age by her mother, Asuncion Roces, a music teacher. She is an educator, composer and performer. 7  Kasilag was known for incorporating indigenous Filipino music with Western influences, thus paving the way for more experimentation among Filipino musicians.  Not only a composer, but also a teacher and performing artist, Lucrecia R. Kasilag was named National Artist in Music in 1989. She fused Filipino ethnic music with Western music, using indigenous instruments in orchestral productions. She has over 250 compositions, and, a leader in music education, she is considered the “First Lady of Philippine Music.” 8
  7. 7. Jose Maceda (Music 1997)  Jose Maceda, composer, musicologist, teacher and performer, explored the musicality of the Filipino deeply.  Maceda embarked on a life-long dedication to the understanding and popularization of Filipino traditional music.  José Montserrat Maceda (January 31, 1917 – May 5, 2004) was a Filipino composer and ethnomusicologist. 9  Maceda's researches and fieldwork have resulted in the collection of an immense number of recorded music taken from the remotest mountain villages and farthest island communities. 10
  8. 8. Social Functions:  Awareness and Quest for a National Identity (League of Filipino Composers)  Artistry in the Society Performance/Techniques  New Music in Southeast Asia 11 Synthesis  In the search for a national identity, Filipinos made music as a means to express who they were. Four of these composers – Molina, Buenaventura, Kasilag, and Maceda – have successfully stamped a Filipino identity in their artistic creations. .. Their works drew inspiration from their being Filipino; from our country, our people, our culture, our traditions, and freely used our own instruments, system of notation, Filipino terms, and tunes to truly depict who we are. 12
