ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on Mexican composer Manuel M. Ponce's symphonic poem "Chapultepec: Tres bocetos sinfóicos," and its role in the construction of the Mexican national identity. It states that he wrote preludes for violin and piano in Spanish and German, and his songs evoked patriotism. According to Ponce, the Mexican music belonged to rural masses. It mentions that he criticized the negligence of the Mexican folk music, and due to his diminishing popularity, he moved to Paris, France.
