JERONIMO GIMENEZ  

(1854 - 1923)

At the early age of twelve, Geronimo Gimenez was already among the 1st violins at the Teatro Principal in Spain and by the age of seventeen, he was conducting opera and zarzuela performances in his hometown of Seville, Spain. In 1871 he received a scholarship to study at the Paris Conservatoire, where he studied under Delphin Alard. Under Alards guidance, he won the First Prize for Harmony and Counterpoint, beating out, among others, fellow classmate Claude Debussy. Gimenez then toured Italy before returning to his home in Spain, where he became the conductor at the Teatro Apolo. After his tenure there, he went on to conduct at the Teatro de la Zarzuela which was founded by fellow zarzuela composer Francisco Barbieri. Gimenez wrote several orchestral and chamber works that were played by by the Unin Musical Espagola and the Sociedad de Conciertos, both of which he conducted. Some of his most popular zarzuelas are El baile de Luis Alonso (1896), La Boda de Luis Alonso (1897) andLa Tempranica (1900), which is considered his best work.
