Guhit-Tugtugin: Adventures in Filipino Folksongs for Piano

Geraldine Gonzales



Guhit-Tugtugin is a collection of Filipino folksongs arranged for piano by Augusto Espino, pianist, pedagogue, conductor, arranger, and member of the UP College of Music Piano Faculty. This book won for its author the Gawad Chanselor for “Pinakamahusay na Alagad ng Sining” in February 2001. This compilation consists of ten “sketches” (guhit) of the arranger’s favorite folksongs (tugtugin). At first glance, these little pieces may seem to be short and simple miniatures, but a closer look would reveal that they are highly innovative, original works that are both interpretatively and technically challenging.
