Felipe Pedrell

“Felipe Pedrell: (1841-1922) Spanish musicologist and composer. He was largely self-taught as a musician, A scholarship for study in Rome exposed him to the great past of Spanish music preserved in archives there, and he determined to revive the tradition by bringing to light both folk and older art music and by promoting a national style of composition. His own works include operas and orchestral and choral works. He is regarded as the father of Spanish musical nationalism.”
