Thank you!

best regards

He was a Republican and the composer of the Anthem of the International Brigades.

The information that I could get, as follows:

The remains of the musician Carlos Palacio (Alcoi 1911-Paris 1997), composer of the anthem of the International Brigades who fought alongside the Republican Government in the Spanish Civil War, were buried in the cemetery of his hometown, municipal sources.

In this way, according to the same sources, was fulfilled the last wish of the musician lying in Alcoy and beside the remains of his wife, Emilia Llorca Vines, incinerated in the municipal cemetery after his death in 2000.

The relocation and burial of the remains of the Palace were made possible thanks to his sons Carlos and Luis, present in the offices of grave, close to fifty people, including friends and family of the artist.

His humanity and friendly nature were highlighted by figures like the writer Adrian Miró, which coincided with the Palace in Paris and who recalled "more than a friend as a brother."

Carlos Palacio, who lived in exile in Paris since the end of the Spanish Civil War, received in 1936 for the Ministry of Education of war write the song with the collaboration of important composers and musicologists.

Thus emerged as issues of international importance "Steel Companies", with lyrics by Luis de Tapia and the Republicans argued Madrid.

Another of his pieces, the Hymn to Luis Carlos Prestes, made with his friend Rafael Espinosa, became the anthem of the International Brigades in 1939 when the German poet Erich Weinert put new letter at the request of the singer Ernst Busch.

The subject was a sung by international fighters, especially by German soldiers.

Palace is also the author of the book "Fight Songs Collection" (Tipografia Moderna, Valencia. 1939), which compiled older compositions extolling the struggles of the disadvantaged sections, preferably those which arose with the outbreak of the first events of the Civil War.

Alcoy always linked to one of his last public appearances took place in 1976 when he led the "Hymn of the Feast".

His compositions were also heard at the Cultural Center of Alcoy on 1 April in tribute to Juan Gil Albert, whom Carlos Palacio had dedicated a piece.

More data in tha attached document.

Unfortunately, I do not have any score, but I will try.

If you do a Google search and are browsing to sites like http://www.klassika.info, you'll find the piece Carezza (song of Caress I guess) as registred opus 38. And the Elvira composition is a Mazurka and not the cappriccio espanol. The two pieces you had uploaded are available at walter cosands website or the IMSLP website. Could you pls try to get the mentioned works.
I would be very happyyyyy.
I will try to get Carezza (means caress in Italian, caricia in Spanish), and Elvira, Mazurka.

Juli Garreta. Born 1875, died 1925. catalan composer. Entirely self taught in piano and composition. Wrote a large number of "sardanas", a Catalan national dance; whilst his friendship with Casals stimulated several larger works for orchestra. I've posted his only piano sonata

The Catalan Pep Ventura was the creator of the "Sardana", a Nacionalist Catalan circle dance.

A short biography in french:

Josep Maria Ventura i Casas (Alcalá la Real, Jaén, 2 février 1817 - Figueres, Gérone, 1875) populairement connue sous le nom de Pep Ventura, était un musicien et compositeur catalan, qui reforma la sardane et la cobla lui donnant amplitude.

Il a vu le jour dans la ville d'Alcalá la Real, dans la province de Jaén. Son père était un militaire catalan de rang subalterne qui s'occupait d'opérations de répression du banditisme qui a suivi la guerre d'indépendance espagnole. Il retourna à Roses en la province de Gérone, en 1819.


Monument dédié à Pep Ventura par la ville de Figueras.Orphelin de sa mère à l'âge de six ans, il vient vivre avec son grand-père, un sergent de la compagnie de Roses tandis que son père est en poste à la garnison de Tarragone. À treize ans, il rejoint son père à Figueres.

À quinze ans, il travaille comme apprenti tailleur dans l'atelier de Joan Llandrich lequel membre d'un cobla à Figueres. Il apprend à jouer de divers instruments et étudie la théorie musicale pour l'exercice de la cobla, d'abord comme un musicien, puis comme directeur en 1848.

Il est considéré comme le « père de la sardane » de par la transformation profonde qui marque ses compositions, fondée sur l'inclusion de nouveaux instruments et l'adjonction de la tenora.
