Ernesto Lecuona


Ernesto Lecuona y Casado (August 6, 1895 Guanabacoa, now part of Havana, Cuba - November 29, 1963 Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands) was a Cuban composer and performer, perhaps the greatest and most legendary Cuban musician of his time. He was a prolific composer of songs and music for stage and film. His works consisted of zarzuela, Afro-Cuban and Cuban rhythms, suites and many songs which are still very famous. They include "Siboney" (Canto Siboney), "Malagueña" and "The Breeze And I" (Andalucía). Read more on Last.fm

In 1942, his great hit, "Always in My Heart" (Siempre en mi Corazon) was nominated for an Oscar for Best Song; however, it lost to "White Christmas." Lecuona was a master of the symphonic form and conducted the Ernesto Lecuona Symphonic Orchestra.

The Orchestra performed in the Cuban Liberation Day Concert at Carnegie Hall on October 10, 1943. The concert included the world premiere of Lecuona's "Black Rhapsody." Lecuona also played popular music with his Lecuona Cuban Boys band. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
