(1900 - 1987)

Born in Madrid and of German descent, Rodolfo Halffter in 1939 became a citizen of Mexico, where he took a leading place in musical life. Early association with Manuel de Falla in Granada is reflected in the style of his work.

Orchestral Music

Rodolfo Halffter’s orchestral music includes an Obertura concertante for piano and orchestra, a Violin Concerto, and the colourful Obertura festiva of 1952. Music from the ballets La madrugada del panadero (‘The Dawn of the Baker’) and Don Lindo de Almería provide suites for concert use. Paquiliztli, for seven percussionists, was written in 1983.
