José María Valle Riestra

José María Valle Riestra
Peruvian composer and conductor José María Valle Riestra (1858-1925) manifested an inclination toward music at an early age. Because of this, his parents took him to London in 1867, where he began his study of music with Crepin. Upon returning to Peru, he continued his studies with Benjamín Castañeda. In 1892, he went back to Europe where he was able to enter the Paris Conservatory. Returning to Lima, he was unable to find appropriate employment until 1909, when he began to work in a recently-founded National Academy of Music.

His compositions were national in character; some employed Inca melodies. Some of his most important works include Ollanta (1900), Las rosas de Jamaica and Atahualpa.
