Andres-Bisda & Roy Coloma, Duo Pianists Play Buencamino's Hibik Ng Diwa and Molina's Lulay on Two Pianos. Performed at a Benefit Concert for the University of the Philippines Centennial

Francisco Buencamino Sr. (1883-1952) was a Filipino composer who performed as a concert pianist during the American colonial period. His compositions include many vocal works and piano solos and duets, including pieces for children. Among his many piano works are Mayon, a descriptive fantasy for piano and orchestra (also arranged for solo piano), and Ang Larawan for piano and orchestra (also arranged for two pianos) which are in the romantic bravura style of Liszt. Hibik Ng Diwa is translated My Soul's Lament. Many of the compositions use Filipino folk songs as thematic ideas.

Antonio Molina (1894-1980) versatile musician, composer, musical educator, was another composer who elevated music beyond the realm of folk music. He completed a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws degree before he studied music and obtained a Teacher's diploma in violoncello at the University of the Philippines Conservatory of Music. He was a member of the faculty of the UP conservatory where he taught many of the leading educators and musicians. His works number in the hundreds and they are for various media: orchestra, chamber works, chorus, piano solo, violin and piano, violoncello and piano, vocal solo, and zarzuela. Lulay is based on a popular serenade. The first stanza of the text tells of the hardships met trying to win the love of a shy but upright woman, the second stanza tells of the happiness felt when one has finally won his lady love, thus the mood changes .
