June 29, birthday of José Pablo Moncayo: Huapango (1941)

José Pablo Moncayo
(1928-1996)
was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, in 1912. He studied music at Conservatorio Nacional de Música under a teacher who studied in Paris under Nadia Boulanger and Paul Dukas. It was through his composition teacher, Carlos Chavez, that he met and became friends with Aaron Copland. You can hear the cross pollination of cultures in Moncayo’s works.
