FUGELLIE, Daniela. León Schidlowsky, Recipient of the National Arts Prize in Music 2014: A Perspective of his Artistic Development in Chile, Israel and Germany. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2015, vol.69, n.224, pp.11-36. ISSN 0716-2790.

This article presents a general view of the artistic development of the Chilean composer León Schidlowsky (1931). It considers the different periods of his life in Chile, Israel and Germany, as well as the most representative works of each of these periods, i.e. chamber, orchestral and graphic music. It focuses on features hitherto not well known in Chile, such as the role of his teaching career and his creative work in Tel Aviv, Israel, as well as his personal contacts with different personalities of the international music scene. Besides, the article presents a general survey of his orchestral production, in terms of the nonmusical contents and the context of its reception. Having Schidlowsky been awarded in 2014 the Chilean National Arts Prize in Music, the article concludes with some thoughts about the role of his work within the Chilean music scene, considering the results of his emigration from Chile to Israel in 1969, the reception of his music in Chile, and the presence of topics of the Chilean and the Latin American culture in his musical output.

Keywords : music of the twentieth century; Chilean art music; transculturality; Chilean National Arts Prize in Music.
