Cuban Classical and Jazz Music

A double concert centerd around the great Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona y Casado (Aug 6, 1895–Nov 29, 1963), a Cuban composer and pianist of worldwide fame. He composed over six hundred pieces. Lecuona studied at the Peyrellade Conservatoire in Paris under Antonio Saavedra, Maurice Ravel and Joaquín Nin. He graduated from the National Conservatory of Havana with a Gold Medal for interpretation when he was sixteen. He had his New York City debut in 1916 at Aeolian Hall. Lecuona’s hit zarzuela, María la O, premiered in Havana in 1930.

He was a prolific composer of songs and music for stage and film, as well as the concert hall. His works consisted of zarzuela, classical works integrating Afro-Cuban and Cuban rhythms, suites, symphonies and many still popular songs. These include Siboney, Malagueña and Andalucía (popularized in the States asThe Breeze And I). His Always in my Heart (originally Siempre en mi Corazón) was nominated fo ran Oscar for Best Song in 1942, but lost to White Christmas. (His cousin Margarita Lecuona wrote Babalú, popularized in the U.S. by Desi Arnaz of The Lucy Show fame.) Ernesto Lecuona died in Tenerife in Spain’s Canary Islands, his father’s homeland, and is buried in Hawthorn, New York not far from the Hudson River.
