Manuel Fernández Caballero (Composer)

Born: 14th March 1835, Murcia, Spain

Died: 26th February 1906, Madrid, Spain

Nationality: Spanish

Manuel Fernández Caballero was a Spanish composer, notably of zarzuelas.

His works were seminal works in the young Género chico form of zarzuela. The success of Los bandos de villafrita (1884) consolidated his career. Its sequel was Las grandes figuras (1885). The sainete El dúo de La Africana and its celebrated jota No cantes más La Africana remain as classic examples of a zarzuela duette.
