Sunday Bandstand 3 September 2017

Jaime Teixidor Dalmau b:14.04.1884 in Barcelona and d:23.02.1957. He was a Spanish musician, conductor, publisher, and composer.
After studying composition and conducting in Barcelona he joined the army in 1906 as a musician, performing on the saxophone. He became the director of the 68th “Africa” Regiment band in the Spanish city of Melilla on the Moroccan coast. He retired from military service in 1920 after 13 years with this band.
He composed over 500 works. These include marches and pasodobles as well as boleros, foxtrots, jotas, sambas, tangos, schottisches, and waltzes for band.
His best-known composition is Amparito Roca, written in 1925 and first performed in September 1925. The score was published in Madrid in 1925 and in Barcelona 1928. Boosey & Hawkes published this in 1935 in an arrangement by Aubrey Winter (1870–1955).
The one on this week's show is his Bonds of Friendship, a march in the Spanish style.
