    Composer: Bartolomé Calatayud (1882 - 1973)

    Bartolomé Calatayud was a Spanish classical guitar composer, teacher and performer. He was born in 1882 on the island of Mallorca. In 1899, while still a teenager, he was awarded the Diploma of Honor 1st Class by the Workers Instructive Center Palma for his "superior musical knowledge in guitar playing." A contemporary and friend of Miguel Llobet and Andrés Segovia, he studied guitar first with Pedro Antonio Alemany Palmer (Palma 1862–1952), and then with Antonio Gomez Melters (1839–1908). He studied harmony and composition with the great Majorcan musicologist and composer D. Antonio Noguera. Bartolomé was also taught by Francisco Tárrega in Valencia.

    This beautiful little waltz is selected from Bartolomé Calatayud's "Cuatro piezas faciles para guitarra" which was published by Union Musical Ediciones, S.L. Mardrid (Espana). It is one of the RCM (The Royal Conservatory of Music) grade 1 repertoire (2004 edition).
