Here you go:
Notable composers include (alphabetically):
- Isaac Albéniz (1860–1909)
* His masterwork, Iberia, a suite of 12 pieces for the piano in four volumes, is still underplayed, underexposed and somehat underrated to this day (at least by concert pianists).
(''Almería'', Book 2 No. 2)
- Antonio de Cabezón (1510–1566)
* The *first* major Iberian keyboard composer, he was most likely a major influence on English composers such as Thomas Tallis and William Byrd

- Manuel de Falla (1876–1946)
* Probably Spain's most celebrated composer, his fame rests on relatively few works - all of the highest quality.

- Enrique Granados (1867–1916)
* The first ''nationalist' Spanish composer, his masterwork ''Goyescas'', a suite for piano consisting of six pieces in two books suffers nowadays a similar fate to Albéniz' Iberia. In great need of a champion.
(Goyesca No. 4 ''Quejas o la Maja y el Ruiseñor'')
- Cristóbal de Morales (1500–1553)
- Federico Mompou (1893–1987)
- Xavier Montsalvatge (1912–2002)
- Federico Moreno Torroba (1891–1982)
- Joaquín Rodrigo (1901–1999)
* Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez is ''considered one of the pinnacles of the Spanish music and guitar concerto repertoire.''
(Concierto de Aranjuez, 2nd movement)
(Fantasia para un gentilhombre)
- Pablo de Sarasate (1844–1908)
* ''George Bernard Shaw once declared that though there were many composers of music for the violin, there were but few composers of violin music.'' (Wiki)
(arch-famous Zigeunerweisen, Op. 20)
- Antonio Soler (1729–1783)
- Fernando Sor (1778–1839)
- Francisco Tárrega (1852–1909)
- Joaquín Turina (1882–1949)
- Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548–1611)
* One of the greatest Masters of the Late Renaissance, to put along Palestrina and Orlando di Lasso.
