Falla, Manuel de
Manuel de Falla was a distinguished Spanish composer of the Romantic era. He had piano lessons with his mother and later moved to Madrid where he continued learning piano. He also studied composition with Felipe Pedrell who gave him inspiration for Spanish church music, folk music, and native opera or zarzuela from the 16th century. Falla's music brought a romantic, ascetic, and ardor fusion into being which reflects the pure spirit of Spain. In 1897, he wrote Meloda for cello and piano, which he dedicated to Salvador Viniegra, who hosted Falla's chamber music evenings.
