(1832 - 1882)

Julián Arcas, composer and guitarist, was born in Almería, Spain. In 1862 he visited England where he played for the royal family at the Brighton Pavilion. In 1870, after giving many concerts throughout Europe and Spain, he returned to Almería where he collaborated with the great luthier, Antonio Torres (1817–1892), in developing guitar construction. He moved ten years later to Antequera, near Málaga, where he died at the age of fifty. His compositions are based primarily on Iberian folk and flamenco elements.
