Jonas Baes, Epos (2021) for alto clarinet solo
performance instructions

Jonas Baes is a professor of composition at the University of the Philippines, and a musicologist researching traditional Philippine music.

In Epos for alto clarinet solo he transforms his impressions of the rituals and music of the island of Mindoro into sounds and notation of Western contemporary music.

Baes’s music is based on the dialectic of Asian tradition and European modernity, while it comes from a very concrete idea: the desire to preserve and perpetuate the traditional culture and nature of the Philippines.
