Personalities | Joaquin Turina | Modern Era | Classical
(Hwa-keen’ Too-re’-na) 1882–1949
A friend of Falla, Turina was, like him, a composer of nationalist music, but his style was also affected by his eight years of study in Paris. His orchestral music is full of Spanish local colour, and is often richly, sometimes heavily scored. His best-known orchestral works are La procesion del roc’o (‘The Procession of the Dew’, 1913) and the Danzas fantasticas (1920). He wrote more chamber music than most Spanish composers of his period, and some fine songs.
