Pablo de Sarasate Biography
1844-1908
 
Pablo de Sarasate was a composer and virtuoso violinist from Spain. His music was known for its fantastic and virtuosic technique, Spanish folk melodies, and fast tempos.

Pablo Martin Meliton de Sarasate y Navascuez was born on March 10, 1844 in Pamplona, Spain. Sarasate was a violin prodigy and made his public violin debut at 8 years old. His violin style was famous for its sweet tone and he became famous both as a composer and violinist.

Sarasate's music was known for its fantastic and virtuosic technique, Spanish folk melodies, and fast tempos. He wrote the famous "Zigeunerweisen" and arranged Bizet's opera "Carmen" into the piece "Carmen Fantasy" for violin and orchestra. Several great composers wrote music for Sarasate to play on the violin, including Edouard Lalo's "Symphonie Espagnole," Max Bruch's "Concerto #2," "Scottish Fantasy" and Camille Saint-Saens "Concertos #1 & 3" and "Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso." After a lifetime of performing and composing violin virtuoso showpieces, Sarasate died on September 20, 1908 in Biarritz, Spain.
