Ignacio Cervantes (7/31/1847 - 4/29/1905)

The Cuban musician Ignacio Cervantes is a key figure in the panorama of Latin American piano music. His dances for the instrument were dubbed genuine musical gems by such internationally renowned Cuban intellectuals as writers Alejo Carpentier and Mirta Aguirre. Cervantes himself came from a bourgeois family of Spanish extraction, and was first taught the piano by his father. His prodigious talent soon became clear, and he began lessons with Juan Miguel Joval, one of Havana’s most respected teachers. In 1854, when he was still only six, he received praise for his performances from the American pianist Louis Moreau Gottschalk, and three years later he composed his first work: La solitaria, renamed Soledad by his daughter María Cervantes.
