In 1996, John Duarte composed the first internationally recognised Malaysian National concert work for solo classical guitar entitled Getaran Jiwa, Variations on a Malaysian Song, Op. 125. As a classically structured work on a Malaysian popular theme Duarte’s work provides a source for stylistic interpretation of Western art music influenced by Malaysian popular music. This paper investigates elements found in the original motion picture soundtrack of Antara Dua Darjat, and the transference from P. Ramlee’s song to Duarte’s setting of the theme in Op. 125. The paper will also explore the possibility of enhancing the theme’s form through adaptation of primary source material. Research focuses on the methodology of: (i) score analysis, (ii) technical analysis, (iii) transcription, and (iv) review of documents. The ensuing discussion will centre on the application of ethno and popular music elements familiar to Malaysians and the possibility to inspire influence in a classical work.
