Manuel Infante (Composer)

Born: 29th July 1883, Osuna, Spain

Died: 21st April 1958, Paris, France

Nationality: Spanish

Manuel Infante was a Spanish composer long resident in France.

A native of Osuna, Infante studied piano and composition with Enrique Morera, and settled in Paris in 1909. While there, he presented numerous concerts of Spanish music; a Spanish nationalist element is predominant in his own works. His most significant music was written for piano, and included 2 suites for two pianos. His works became popular through performances by his countryman José Iturbi, to whom many of them are dedicated.
