"Composer belonging to the musical generation of 1927. He has stood out as the translator of numerous musical works to Braille."

Rafael Rodriguez Albert was born in Alicante in 1902. He became blind when he was eight years old, a circumstance that failed to keep him from studying music in Valencia, Granada and Madrid. He graduated in Law, Philosophy and Letters. After the Spanish civil war, he entered the National Organization of the Blind (ONCE), where he created the most prominent works in his repertoire. He shared this activity with his teaching labours. Rodriguez Albert has also gained recognition for his translation of numerous musical works to Braille. His music has been defined as “nationalist”. According to critics, the luminous and clear ambience of Levante and the Mediterranean are perceived in his works. He died in Madrid in 1979.
