(1908 - 2004)

Son of the Cuban composer and pianist Joaquín Nin Castellanos and brother of Anaïs Nin, Joaquín Nin-Culmell was a pupil of Dukas in Paris, later taking lessons with Manuel de Falla, and with the pianists Cortot and Ricardo Viñes. Although long resident in the United States, where he held important academic positions, he wrote music that always held a Spanish flavour. His compositions include songs, a ballet and an opera, orchestral and chamber music.

Piano Music

Written between 1956 and 1961, Nin-Culmell’s four volumes of Tonadas draw on Spanish material.
