THE LIVING COMPOSERS PROJECT  

Fernando García

(b. 4 July 1930, Santiago).

Chilean composer of mostly orchestral, chamber, choral, vocal, and piano works that have been performed throughout the world.

Prof. García studied composition privately with Gustavo Becerra-Schmidt, Carlos Botto Vallarino and Juan Orrego-Salas in Santiago from 1949–60, during which time he also studied analysis privately with Juan Allende-Blin in Santiago.

Among his honours are the Premio Municipalidad de Santiago (1963, for América insurrecta, Op. 26) and four prizes in the Festival de Música Chilena in Santiago (honourable mention, 1963, for América insurrecta, Op. 26; honourable mention, 1964, for Sombra del paraíso, Op. 27; Tercero Premio, 1965, for Estáticas, Op. 28; Primer Premio, 1968, for Firmamento sumergido, Op. 39). He later received an honourable mention in the competition of the city of Providencia (1997, for Dos Paisajes urbanos, Op. 119), the Premio Presidente de la República (2000, for his œuvre), the Medalla de la Música from the Consejo Chileno de la Música (2002, for his œuvre), the Premio Nacional de Artes Musicales in Chile (2002, for his œuvre), and the Medalla Rectoral de la Rectoría de la Universidad de Chile in Santiago (2002, for his work as an academic). He was a founding member of the Colegio de Compositores Latinoamericanos de Música de Arte in 2000 and has been a Miembro de Número of the Academia Chilena de Bellas Artes of the Instituto de Chile in Santiago since 2004.

Prof. García is also active in other positions. He worked as a trombonist in the Orquesta Sinfónica de Profesores del Ministerio de Educación de Chile in Santiago from 1956–58 and served as inspector–librarian of the Coro de la Universidad de Chile in Santiago from 1960–63 and as president of the Asociación Coral Chilena in Santiago in 1962. He then served as director of the archives of the Instituto de Extensión Musical (IEM) in Santiago from 1963–67 and as its secretary from 1967–73, as well as secretary (1965–68) and treasurer (1968–71) of the Asociación Nacional de Compositores in Santiago. He later served as music advisor to both the Ballet Nacional de Cuba and the Gran Teatro de La Habana from 1979–89. In addition, he has contributed numerous articles to journals in Europe and North America and to the Diccionario de la Música Española e Hispanoamericana (2000, SGAE), for which he served as coordinator of the delegation from Chile. He has served as vice-director of the music journal Revista Musical Chilena in Santiago since 1993.

He taught analysis, harmony, music history, music theory, and solfège on a part-time basis at the Conservatorio El Golf in Santiago in 1953, the Conservatorio Ñuñoa in Santiago from 1954–56, the Escuela Moderna de Música in Santiago from 1956–61 and in 1964–65, and the Conservatorio Independencia in Santiago from 1957–59. He served as director of the department of music at the Universidad de Chile from 1970–73 and as president (1971) and vice-president (1972–73) of its Comisión de Extensión del Consejo Normativo. He later taught analysis, organology, research methodology, and other subjects as a professor at the Conservatorio Nacional de Música in Lima from 1974–78 and served as director of its Taller de Investigaciones Musicales. He has taught analysis, the history of music in Chile, the music of the Americas and Chile, and organology as Profesor Titular at the Universidad de Chile since 1992, where he has also served in other capacities, including as secretary of the Comisión Central de Evaluación Académica since 1999.
