Blurb/Shorttext:
Manuel Quiroga Losada (1892-1961), violinist, composer, and artist, was one of the foremost figures of the first half of the 20th century. This work tries to bring to light his musical legacy, a long overdue task. The book also traces the life and career of Quiroga as well as his influence and relationships within the musical world of his time. Manuel Quiroga mainly wrote for the violin in the form of short pieces (dances and arrangements), cadenzas, and etudes. The pieces have been classified by genre and musical content in six different categories. For each entry a catalogue covers different issues such as date and place of composition, date of publication, publisher’s name, first performance, recording and dedication. As an inventory of the forty-four pieces for violin solo, violin and piano, and violin and orchestra written by Quiroga, this book should be especially useful to those interested in performing or recording this repertoire, as well as to those fascinated with the figure of such a great artist, one of the best violinist-composers of the twentieth century.
