The Philippine Embassy in Prague reported to the Department of Foreign Affairs that the orchestra in Česke Budejovice, Czech Republic, under the baton of Indian conductor, Debashish Chaudhuri, honored the late Philippine National Artist for Music, Lucrecia R. Kasilag, by playing her composition, Lullaby, on May 15.  

The soft, melodious music that was meant as a lullaby for children was played beautifully by the orchestra.  One music lover commented that the music was a “tender piece that awakened the orchestra.”

Ms. Kasilag’s creation was played alongside those of classical composers, such as Sergej Rachmaninov’s Scherzo d moll and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Va, l’error mia palesa.

Entitled “Asian Inspiration,” the concert was graced by Philippine Ambassador to the Czech Republic Evelyn D. Austria-Garcia, who was the concert’s honored guest.

The Indian conductor, Mr. Chaudhuri, expressed interest for cooperation with the Embassy in the future, promising to feature compositions of renowned Filipino composers in upcoming concerts.
