(1832 - 1882)

Julián Arcas (1832-1882), born in Almeria in Spain, was famous as a flamenco guitarist and composer of national dances and small pieces. The apogee of his fame was in the years 1860-70, during which he toured in central Europe and played in the Brighton Pavilion in 1862 before members of the British Royal family. In 1864 he toured with a pianist, Patanas, with whom he was living in Barcelona. He tired of ‘life on the road’ and retired (c.1870) to Almeria, where he established a business and collaborated with the Sevillian luthier Antonio Torres in developing some features of the guitar. Finally he moved to Antequera (Málaga) where he died after a short retirement. Arcas’ music has been largely neglected by recording artists.
