Joaquín Turina

Born: 1882

Died: 1949

Nationality: Spanish

Publisher: UME

Turina's music is characterised by a strong Andalusian flavour contained within traditional compositional forms. After initial studies in Seville and Madrid, he spent nine years in Paris from 1905, studying theory with Vincent d'Indy and piano with Moritz Moszkowski. It was in Paris that he became friends with Isaac Albeniz and Manuel de Falla who encouraged him to use traditional Spanish music in his work. At the start of World War I he returned to Spain to work as a composer, teacher and critic, and was appointed as Professor of Composition at the Royal Conservatory in Madrid in 1931.
