Spanish pianist and composer.
Albéniz is considered the initiator of modern Spanish music.
He was among the very first to consciously turn to popular heritage, to listen to its rhythms and inflections and to introduce them into his production.
Trained in the Madrid Conservatory, he began his career as a concert piano player at a very young age which led him to various European and American countries. In 1874 he resumed his studies of composition, in 1878 he became a student of Ferenc Liszt.
In 1893 he settled in Paris coming into contact with the local musical environment, here he wrote his best works.

Please do not confuse with Mateo Albéniz.
