    Here you go:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Spanish_compo...

    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).

    - 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.
