Felipe Villanueva (01/01/1862 - 01/01/1893)

An important Mexican composer, Felipe Villanueva was born on 5th February, an important date, in 1862, and died young on 2nd June 1893. At the age of six he played the violin and when he was ten wrote a cantata dedicated to the Cura Hidalgo. He was founder of the Musical Institute and belonged to the Group of Six that brought together the best known musicians of the time, Acevedo, Gustavo E. Campa, Ricardo Castro, Carlos J. Meneses, Quezada and Villanueva himself. In spite of the shortness of his life, he left important orchestral compositions and operas. Unfortunately his music has been almost totally forgotten, with the exception of his beautiful Vals Poético, which remains in the repertoire. An enchanting work, with a fluent and evocative melody, it is a central element in the repertoire of pianists and a frequent encore piece in orchestral concerts.
