Day 29 : Piano and Violin Concert

Today, I watched a piano and violin concert at the Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center in Malolos City.

The concert featured the highly-acclaimed Chilean violinist-conductor Juan Luis Munoz and the international Filipina concert pianist Mariel Ilusorio. Mariel has family roots in Bulacan.

The audience were treated with beautiful piano and violin music from different masters from different parts of the world. Of course including Philippines! Not that I am so nationalistic but my favorites of all the pieces that were performed were the music composed by Filipino musicians : A. Espino’s Recuerdo Variations – a piece based on Jovita Fuentes’ Ay Ay Kalisud and F.Buencamino’s Mayon Fantasy. Or maybe because I can easily relate with the music.

The concert ended with bravo applause from the members of the audience. They are truly an amazing music concert duo.

This national circuit tour is made possible through the Outreach Division of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The Bulacan concert was sponsored by the Provincial Government of Bulacan through the Provincial Youth, Sports, Employment, Arts and Culture Office and the Pamanang Bulacan Foundation, Inc.
