Joaquín Nin was a Cuban composer and pianist. He promoted the music of the unfamiliar Spain composers of the 17th and 18th centuries, playing their work and Bach, Couperin, and Liszt's works. In the early part of the 20th century, Joaquin Nin became the leader in the revival of Spanish pop. A body of almost unknown repertoire – the exotics of the Iberian Peninsula – was introduced into the public's hands with Nin's editions of 'old' Spanish music and his arrangements of famous music and dances.
Nin produced accompaniments in the Veinte Cantos Populares Espanoles, which support the melodies and enable the spirit to emanate in the folk song. By using both Hispanic and Impressionist elements in the sense of his style and sculpture, Nin has added art songs of enduring importance to the Spanish repertoire, establishing his manifestation. Nin courageously condemns virtuosity, pandering to public taste, the evils of commerce, and "serving audiences rather than the music." He inspires his colleagues to broaden their repertoire by combining ancient and modem music and finding simplicity in the method.
