Ataulfo Argenta (1913 - 1958)

Ataulfo Argenta entered the Madrid Conservatory when he was thirteen years old, studying piano, violin and composition. He won two major prizes, the Premio Extraordinario for piano playing and the Kristina Nilsson Prize. These successes enabled him to continue his studies at a post-graduate level in Belgium. After returning to Spain he commenced working at the Madrid Opera in 1933, firstly as a répétiteur and then as second conductor. During the Spanish Civil War he was mobilised into the army of General Franco and did not resume his musical career until 1939. In 1941 he left Spain for the Conservatory at Kassel in Germany in order to recommence his musical studies, even though he was now married with two children.
