Musician of Tenerife
Teobaldo Power y Lugo Viña (Sta. Cruz de Tenerife, 1848 - Madrid, 1884).From childhood he was a virtuoso piano player and composer. After some time in Europe and Havana, his compositions included the famous Cantos Canarios, an important and unique piece of music in the culture of the Islands, as it is the only music that took popular Canary Island airs and successfully adapted them into classical pieces. In Madrid, Power won the Chair of Piano at the National School of Music, and the post of organist in the Royal Chapel.
