Manuel de Falla

Manuel de Falla was born in 1876 in Cadiz, where he first studied, moving later to Madrid and then to Paris, but returning to Madrid when war broke out in 1914. Influenced by the traditional Andalusian cante jondo, he settled in Granada, where his friends included the poet Federico Garcia Lorca.

The Civil War of 1936 found de Falla neutral in the struggle, but in 1939 he moved to Buenos Aires, where he continued work on his ambitious stage-work Atlantida, which remained unfinished at the time of his death in 1946.
