Jesús Guridi Bidaola (Vitoria-Gasteiz, 25 September 1886-Madrid, 7 April 1961) was a key player in twentieth-century Spanish and Basque music. Among his best-known works are the zarzuela El Caserío, the opera Amaya and the orchestral work Ten Basque Melodies. He gave his first public concert at 15, with the Philharmonic Society of Bilbao. Strongly influenced by Richard Wagner and other late-Romantic musicians, he found inspiration in the roots of Basque folklore. Guridi produced copiously in a huge range of genres, from chamber music to vocal and choral compositions, orchestral works, religious pieces for the organ, operas and zarzuelas.

Pablo Sorozábal Mariezcurrena (Donostia, 18 September 1897Madrid, 26 December 1988) is one of the greatest Spanish composers of zarzuelas and symphonic works of the twentieth century. His works include Katiuska, la mujer rusa (1931, Barcelona), Adiós a la bohemia (1933, Madrid, with Pío Baroja), La del manojo de rosas (1934, Madrid), La tabernera del puerto (1936, Barcelona) and Don Manolito (1943, Madrid).
