CÓRDOBA, Jaime (Colombia)
Born in Colombia, in 1946, Jaime Córdoba began his musical studies with his father. At the early age of fourteen, he wrote his first Colombian works for duets, trios and quartets. During the seventies, he studied advanced classical guitar with Homero Hidrovo, in Ecuador, where he devoted his efforts to studying South-American folk musical rhythms, an area in which he gained considerable experience. Next, he went to Europe to pursue his studies in composition (harmony, counterpoint, and orchestration) at the Conservatoire national de Metz (France), under Jean-Jacques Griesser and Claude Poletti.
Between 1985 and 1990, he was granted a First Prize in orchestration and in harmony, as well as Second Prize in counterpoint.
For a while, he studied orchestra conducting with Fernand Quattrocchi.
At the end of the 90s, he completed - an original idea - an educational project on Latin American music, a project approved by the ministère de la Culture and funded by the Direction régionale des affaires culturelles (DRAC), with the collaboration of the Épinal Symphony Orchestra (France), conducted by Jean-Jacques Griesser. At the same time, his Suite Colombiana No. 1 was premiered by the Colombian-Austrian Orchestra at the National Library of Vienna (Austria), with financial support from that city.
In 1995, his work entitled Tihuanacu was premiered by the Gaston Stoltz Symphony Orchestra, under Daniel Colombat, in Pompey (France).
This work was performed in 1996 by the Conservatoire de Strasbourg Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Anne Müller.
In 1997, Jaime Córdoba, in collaboration with Latif Chaarani, carried out a musical and educational project on Cuban folklore, to be implemented for music teaching in high schools.
