From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Salvador Bacarisse Chinoria (September 12, 1898 ‚Äď August 5, 1963) was a Spanish composer.

Bacarisse was born in Madrid and studied music at the Real Conservatorio de M√ļsica there, as a student of Manuel Fern√°ndez Alberdi (piano) and Conrado del Campo (composition). He was a leading member of the Grupo de los Ocho (founded in the spirit of Les Six to combat musical conservatism) and helped to promote new music as the artistic director of Uni√≥n Radio until 1936. At the end of the Spanish Civil War in 1939, Bacarisse exiled himself to Paris after rejecting the militarist regime of Francisco Franco. From 1945 until his death, he worked for Radio-T√©l√©vision Fran√ßaise as a broadcaster of Spanish-language programs.

Bacarisse composed for the piano, mixed chamber ensembles, operas including El tesoro de Boabdil which won a French radio award in 1958, and orchestral works including four piano concertos and a violin concerto. His most famous work today is the Concertino for Guitar and Orchestra in A minor, Op. 72, composed in 1952 in a neo-romantic style.
