Old world influence on new world music: Candelario Huízar's Imágenes
by Feltman, Joshua, Ph.D., City University of New York, 2013, 198; 3601703
Abstract (Summary)

Imágenes, an orchestral tone poem by Mexican composer Candelario Huízar, is an example of early twentieth-century Mexican orchestral writing (ca. 1910–1920) that sits on the cusp between the French-influenced music of the Porfiriato (ca. 1890–1910) and the folk-inflected Nationalism that followed after the 1920's. An historical, stylistic, and analytical study of the work places it in the context of other works of the period. A new annotated edition of the work is based on available resources, including historical information and manuscript sources.
