He was one of the most popular and important composers of his time.

He wrote zarzuelas in all shapes and sizes, including the 3-act zarzuela grande and the one-act género chico forms. His most celebrated work is La revoltosa, written in the latter style. Many of the preludes to his zarzuelas (including those to El tambor de granaderos and La patria chica) have remained staple items in Spanish orchestral concerts. He died in Madrid in 1909.
