Grade 4. Approx. duration: ten minutes.
This set consists of two folklore-based nationalist works, of which the “Fuga criolla” (1932), is considered by some to be Plaza’s best-known composition. Originally written for string quartet but later arranged by the composer for string orchestra, Gerard Béhague writes that in this work Plaza “combines very effectively certain accompaniment figures of popular harpists (in a stylized fashion) with the normal contrapuntal nature of the fugue.”
In the second work, “Fuga romántica venezolana” (1950), Plaza honors J. S. Bach by writing, in the words of Marie Elizabeth Labonville, “a fugue strict in technique but Venezuelan in flavor.” However, unlike the earlier work, it is not altogether clear as to how much nationalism is present in this composition.
