Biography
Federico Moreno Torroba (1891-1982) was a Spanish composer and opera impresario born in Madrid.  He is often associated with a traditional form called the zarzuela, which is a kind of Spanish musical, and he directed several opera companies--where he also staged his own operas--during his lifetime.  Moreno Torroba is perhaps best known for his compositions for classical guitar (including the Sonatina in A and Suite castellana), many of which were dedicated to and/or written for AndrĂ©s Segovia.
