Manuel de Falla, born in Cádiz, Andalusia, was the founding father of twentieth-century Spanish music. Following the Romanticism of Albéniz and Granados, Falla came to be appreciated as a true representative of the modern age. His operas, ballets, orchestral music, songs and instrumental works have been acknowledged internationally as being among the greatest artistic contributions to Spanish culture. His creative genius profoundly influenced the younger generation of Iberian composers and over the years his reputation has gone from strength to strength. This profile of de Falla includes more than an hour of music by the composer. Audio samples are contained in the text: just tap to listen while you read.
