Iturriaga, Enrique (b. 1918)

Biography

The renowned Peruvian composer Enrique Iturriaga was born in Lima in 1918. Between 1924 and 1939 he studied piano with Lily Rosay and began his studies in Theory and Harmony with Andrés Sas. After a time studying Economics at the Catholic University of Peru, he decided to dedicate himself to composition and was admitted to the National Conservatory of Music, where he studied this specialty with Rodolfo Holzmann from 1945 to 1950 and graduated as Professor of Composition in 1954. Still a student, in 1947 he was awarded the National Prize "Duncker-Lavalle" for his work “Canción y Muerte de Rolando” for voice and orchestra, with text by the poet Jorge Eduardo Eielson. The work was premiered in 1949 by Theo Buchwald and the National Symphony Orchestra of Peru, with Gloria Colmenares as the soloist. In 1950 he travelled to Paris thanks to a scholarship from the French government, and studied with Arthur Honegger during 1950 and 1951. Upon his return to Peru, along with composition and teaching, he worked as chorus conductor and took part in the school music scene until 1958. Between 1953 and 1960 worked as a music critic for the newspaper "El Comercio” in Lima. In April of 1957 he was awarded the "Juan Landaeta" Prize for his work “Suite” for orchestra, in the competition celebrating the occasion of the Second Latin-American Festival of Caracas. The jury was comprised of Aaron Copland, Alberto Ginastera, Carlos Chávez, Domingo Santa Cruz and Juan Bautista Plaza. “Suite” was premiered by Carlos Chávez in Caracas, and a year later in Lima. In 1963 he travelled to the United States to acquaint himself with its universities and other higher institutions in the music field, and to study the work being done there. He visited Columbia University, Harvard University, University of Rochester, North Pacific University, University of Texas at Austin, Howard University, University of California, Berkeley, Stanford University, University of California, Los Angeles, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and The Juilliard School, among others. That same year he travelled to Santiago, having been invited by the University of Chile to attend the Pan- American Congress of Musical Educators. The following year, in 1964, he returned to Chile to serve as a jury member at the Biennial Competition of Chilean Music. In 1965 he composed his symphonic work “Vivencias”, commissioned by the Committee for the Third Pan- American Festival in Washington D.C. and premiered by Lukas Foss and the Buffalo Symphony Orchestra. In Peru he has also written music for the theatrical works of Sebastián Salazar Bondy, Julio Ramón Ribeyro and Alfonso La Torre, among others. Maestro Iturriaga has taught music from 1957 to present, mainly at the National Conservatory of Music (Composition, Harmony and Analysis), where he was Director between 1973 and 1976, and where he is, at present, Emeritus Professor. Until 1987 he was also a professor in the Arts Department – and is now Emeritus Professor– of the School of Letters at the prestigious National University of San Marcos, the oldest university in the Americas. Among his other works that have received awards are “Homenaje a Stravinsky”, composed in 1971 for cajón and orchestra, for which he received again the "Duncker-Lavalle" prize, and his Symphony “Junín y Ayacucho”, composed in 1974, for which he won the "Army of Peru" Prize. Enrique Iturriaga is co-author of the book “Music in Peru”, published by Patronato Popular y Porvenir in 1985. In 1988 The National University of San Marcos published his “Method of Melodic Composition”, a synthesis of the work that he developed in Lima and Quito for the Regional Program of Musicology (UNESCO-PNDP) between 1978 and 1981. In addition to the aforementioned works, other highlights are his works for piano: “Pregón y danza, “La máquina”, “Ensayos interválicos” and “Tres piezas para piano”; his works for voice and piano: “Cuatro poemas de Javier Heraud”, “Dos ejercicios poéticos” and “Tres poemas de ‘Sin título’ de Eielson”; his chamber works: “Expresiones” for violin, “Llamadas y fuga para un Santiago” for brass ensemble, “Manormeyor” for string quartet, “Pequeña suite” for violin and cello, and “Paisaje” for flute and guitar; and his choral works: “Las cumbres”, “Adivina, adivinanza…”, “Tres huaynos de Navidad”, “Tres adivinanzas” for children, “Viene y va y vueltas da” and “Desiertos”; and other works: “Obertura para una comedia”, “…De la lírica campesina”, “Tres canciones para coro y orquesta” and “Tres danzas de William Byrd”. In celebration of his 90th birthday, in October 2008 and March 2009 Enrique Iturriaga was invited to attend concerts of his “Sinfonía Junín y Ayacucho” in the cities of Fort Worth and Madrid, respectively. Both presentations were under the baton of renowned conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya, and the concert in Madrid, with the National Symphony Orchestra of Spain, was recorded and broadcast by Spanish Radio and Television Corporation (RTVE).

Martínez Compañón, Baltasar (1738-1797)

Martínez Compañón, Baltasar (1738-1797)

Biography

Baltasar Martínez Compañón (1738-1797). Between 1782 and 1785, Baltasar Martínez Compañón y Bajanda, Bishop of Trujillo, made a number of official visits within his diocese, resulting in a record of nine volumes of watercolours illustrating the natural landscape, daily life and architecture of his bishopric.In this codex, known as the Trujillo del Perú, we also find 19 musical works that were collected in the streets of the villages he visited. There are many reasons for treating this collection of music as indispensable to any attempt at understanding the history of Latin American music. Being part of an oral tradition, these pieces would never have come down to us in their original form if it had not been for this collection.

Garrido-Lecca, Gonzalo (b. 1975)

Garrido-Lecca, Gonzalo (b. 1975)

Biography

Gonzalo Garrido-Lecca´s music has been performed widely in many concert halls of different countries such as Spain, Argentina, Finland, Peru, Chile, Romania and the United States. He writes mainly concert music but also collaborates frequently with artists from other disciplines and has written music for video, dance and theatre. His most recent works evolve within a aesthetic standpoint that gives primordial importance to harmony, based on natural resonance, that is articulated in rich polyphonic textures, vigorous rythmic impulses and clear formal stuctures. Works like 'Alemí' (2007) for ensemble, 'Caleidoscopio' for six instrumentalists, and the orchestral work 'Solar' (2014) show this approach. In other works like 'Tarkas' (2013), he incorporates the expression of the folkloric music of the Andes, blending the rich tradition of South American folk music with the latest trends of contemporary concert music, in an attempt to create a new form of imaginary folklore. Mr. Garrido-Lecca has also appeared as piano accompanist in several concerts featuring his own music, and has played live on theatre plays. He currently is professor of Composition, and Musical Analysis at the Music School of Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (PUPC). He has received first prize in Choral writing contest 'Ciudad de Getafe 2005', Second prize in Composition contest organized by IPAE 1999, and second prize in 'Young Composers Contest Sgae-Fundación Autor 2009' .

Between 1953 and 1960 worked as a music critic for the newspaper "El Comercio” in Lima. In April of 1957 he was awarded the "Juan Landaeta" Prize for his work “Suite” for orchestra, in the competition celebrating the occasion of the Second Latin-American Festival of Caracas. The jury was comprised of Aaron Copland, Alberto Ginastera, Carlos Chávez, Domingo Santa Cruz and Juan Bautista Plaza. “Suite” was premiered by Carlos Chávez in Caracas, and a year later in Lima. In 1963 he travelled to the United States to acquaint himself with its universities and other higher institutions in the music field, and to study the work being done there. He visited Columbia University, Harvard University, University of Rochester, North Pacific University, University of Texas at Austin, Howard University, University of California, Berkeley, Stanford University, University of California, Los Angeles, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and The Juilliard School, among others. That same year he travelled to Santiago, having been invited by the University of Chile to attend the Pan- American Congress of Musical Educators. The following year, in 1964, he returned to Chile to serve as a jury member at the Biennial Competition of Chilean Music. In 1965 he composed his symphonic work “Vivencias”, commissioned by the Committee for the Third Pan- American Festival in Washington D.C. and premiered by Lukas Foss and the Buffalo Symphony Orchestra. In Peru he has also written music for the theatrical works of Sebastián Salazar Bondy, Julio Ramón Ribeyro and Alfonso La Torre, among others. Maestro Iturriaga has taught music from 1957 to present, mainly at the National Conservatory of Music (Composition, Harmony and Analysis), where he was Director between 1973 and 1976, and where he is, at present, Emeritus Professor. Until 1987 he was also a professor in the Arts Department – and is now Emeritus Professor– of the School of Letters at the prestigious National University of San Marcos, the oldest university in the Americas. Among his other works that have received awards are “Homenaje a Stravinsky”, composed in 1971 for cajón and orchestra, for which he received again the "Duncker-Lavalle" prize, and his Symphony “Junín y Ayacucho”, composed in 1974, for which he won the "Army of Peru" Prize. Enrique Iturriaga is co-author of the book “Music in Peru”, published by Patronato Popular y Porvenir in 1985. In 1988 The National University of San Marcos published his “Method of Melodic Composition”, a synthesis of the work that he developed in Lima and Quito for the Regional Program of Musicology (UNESCO-PNDP) between 1978 and 1981. In addition to the aforementioned works, other highlights are his works for piano: “Pregón y danza, “La máquina”, “Ensayos interválicos” and “Tres piezas para piano”; his works for voice and piano: “Cuatro poemas de Javier Heraud”, “Dos ejercicios poéticos” and “Tres poemas de ‘Sin título’ de Eielson”; his chamber works: “Expresiones” for violin, “Llamadas y fuga para un Santiago” for brass ensemble, “Manormeyor” for string quartet, “Pequeña suite” for violin and cello, and “Paisaje” for flute and guitar; and his choral works: “Las cumbres”, “Adivina, adivinanza…”, “Tres huaynos de Navidad”, “Tres adivinanzas” for children, “Viene y va y vueltas da” and “Desiertos”; and other works: “Obertura para una comedia”, “…De la lírica campesina”, “Tres canciones para coro y orquesta” and “Tres danzas de William Byrd”. In celebration of his 90th birthday, in October 2008 and March 2009 Enrique Iturriaga was invited to attend concerts of his “Sinfonía Junín y Ayacucho” in the cities of Fort Worth and Madrid, respectively. Both presentations were under the baton of renowned conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya, and the concert in Madrid, with the National Symphony Orchestra of Spain, was recorded and broadcast by Spanish Radio and Television Corporation (RTVE).

Garrido-Lecca, Gonzalo (b. 1975)

Garrido-Lecca, Gonzalo (b. 1975)

Biography

Gonzalo Garrido-Lecca´s music has been performed widely in many concert halls of different countries such as Spain, Argentina, Finland, Peru, Chile, Romania and the United States. He writes mainly concert music but also collaborates frequently with artists from other disciplines and has written music for video, dance and theatre. His most recent works evolve within a aesthetic standpoint that gives primordial importance to harmony, based on natural resonance, that is articulated in rich polyphonic textures, vigorous rythmic impulses and clear formal stuctures. Works like 'Alemí' (2007) for ensemble, 'Caleidoscopio' for six instrumentalists, and the orchestral work 'Solar' (2014) show this approach. In other works like 'Tarkas' (2013), he incorporates the expression of the folkloric music of the Andes, blending the rich tradition of South American folk music with the latest trends of contemporary concert music, in an attempt to create a new form of imaginary folklore. Mr. Garrido-Lecca has also appeared as piano accompanist in several concerts featuring his own music, and has played live on theatre plays. He currently is professor of Composition, and Musical Analysis at the Music School of Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (PUPC). He has received first prize in Choral writing contest 'Ciudad de Getafe 2005', Second prize in Composition contest organized by IPAE 1999, and second prize in 'Young Composers Contest Sgae-Fundación Autor 2009' .

Alzedo, José Bernardo (1788-1878)

Biography

José Bernardo Alzedo (August 20, 1788 – December 28, 1878), was one of the most important Peruvian composers of the nineteenth century. Born in Lima, Peru, studied music at the Convent of San Agustín and in 1821 was the winner of a contest sponsored by General José de San Martín to choose a national anthem for Peru. In 1822, Alzedo went to Chile as a soldier in a military band which he left years later in order to dedicate completely to music. In 1846 he became kapellmeister of the Cathedral of Santiago. After living 40 years in Chile he returned to Peru in 1864 to become director of the Peruvian Military Band and president of the Philharmonic. He spent the last years of his life in Peru. He wrote the book "Elemental Philosophy of Music" (1869), where he explored the subject of the music of the Quechuas. He composed folk songs, numerous religious works, and military music. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ José Bernardo Alzedo (Agosto 20, 1788 – Diciembre 28, 1878) fue uno de los compositores peruanos más importantes del Siglo XIX. Estudió música en el Convento de San Agustín, donde fue alumno de los sacerdotes Cipriano Aguilar y Pascual Neves. En 1807, vistió el hábito de hermano dominico y asumió la enseñanza de los niños coristas del Convento de Santo Domingo. En 1821, participó en el concurso que convocó don José de San Martín para elegir el Himno Nacional del Perú. Su composición musical resultó vencedora, junto a la letra de don José de la Torre Ugarte. En 1822, viajó a Chile donde siguió dedicándose a la música. En 1833, ingresó a la coro de la Catedral de Santiago, donde fue Maestro durante 18 años. En 1864, regresó a Lima a pasar sus últimos años. Siguió componiendo muchas canciones religiosas y patrióticas. También escribió el libro "Filosófía elemental de la música" (1869).
