About Ernesto Halffter
Ernesto Halffter Escriche (16 January 1905, Madrid–5 July 1989, Madrid) was a Spanish composer and conductor. He was the brother of Rodolfo Halffter
Halffter was part of the Grupo de los Ocho (English: Group of Eight), which formed a sub-set of the Generation of '27
At the age of thirteen, he started to compose music for the piano. A critic sent a copy of Halffter's string trio, "Homenajes", to Manuel de Falla, beginning a long relationship that included composition lessons from Falla. "Sinfonietta" is one of his earliest and best works; it shows the influence of Scarlatti
