Description

In this paper, I will focus on Filipino art songs, or Kundiman, which were composed during the turn of the 20th century. I will explain the stylistic aspects of the music and the performance practice of two pieces, “Ang Maya,” by Jose Estella and “Mutya ng Pasig,” by Nicanor Abelardo, as well as their place in Filipino media and culture, including traditional and modern settings. Alongside each piece, I will discuss the history of the liberetto as well as the composer’s biography and his previous works. Some of the most prominent of Filipino Kundiman comes from folklore, such as “Mutya ng Pasig,” while other pieces come from Spanish poetry, such as “Ang Maya.”
