Enríquez de Valderrábano


Enríquez de Valderrábano (c.1500-after 1557) was a Spanish vihuelist. The details of his life are almost completely unknown. That he may have lived in great poverty is suggested by a motto at the end of his large collection of music Libro de música de vihuela intitulado Silva de sirenas (Book of music for the vihuela entitled Forest of the Sirens), published in 1547 in seven books. The preface to the work also suggests that he worked at the court of Count of Miranda, Fancisco de Zúñiga, and says that he lived in Peñaranda del Duero. Read more on Last.fm

The preface to the work also suggests that he worked at the court of Count of Miranda, Fancisco de Zúñiga, and says that he lived in Peñaranda del Duero. Two of Valderrábano's contemporaries - Fray Juan Bermudo and Suárez de Figueroa - described him as one of the greatest musicians of their time, praising the skill and inventiveness of his vihuela playing.

The Libro de música contains his own compositions, including lute songs, many based on folk tunes or dances, thirty-three fantasías, and diferencias, including a set of 120 variations on "Gúardame las vacas"; he also included his arrangements of pieces by composers such as Josquin des Prez, Adrian Willaert, and Cristóbal de Morales for one or two lutes; . Valderrábano contributed to all major genres of vihuela music, including arrangements of masses, motets, and madrigals (and some arrangements for two vihuelas), improvisations on dance tunes and ground bass figures, and a number of highly original fantasías.
