Abstract:
In this study I will attempt to demonstrate that stylistic and compositional features and a non-traditional approach to form in the orchestral output of composer Silvestre Revueltas contributed to the development of a nationalist school in Mexico in the twentieth century. In the paper, I present a biographical sketch of Silvestre Revueltas (1899-1940), as there is little available printed information in English concerning the life and work of this composer who is acknowledged to be one of the most significant figures in the history of music in Mexico. I also address the cultural, artistic, and philosophical influences that shaped the cultural world in Mexico in the first quarter of the twentieth century, and their influence on Revueltas and his music.The heart of the paper is an overview of certain compositional and stylistic features in the music of Silvestre Revueltas, followed by observations on structural elements in two of his symphonic works: Janitzio and Alcancías. The document concludes with a brief summary of the influence of Revueltas on some of the contemporary composers of his time and on the musical life in Mexico and the United States in the first half of the twentieth century. I have also included in this document a chronological list of works and a substantial list of bibliographic references.
