Soler Main Page
He is best known for his many mostly one-movement keyboard sonatas strongly influenced by Domenico Scarlattiwhich constitute a very important, quite underrated, contribution to the harpsichord fadango, fortepiano and organ repertoire. Inwhen he was six, he entered the Escolania of the Monastery of Montserrat where he studied music with the resident maestro Benito Esteve and organist Benito Valls.
Inhe was simultaneously appointed organist and subdeacon at the Cathedral of La Seu d’Urgell. Later in life, fandanggo was chapel master in Lleida and at the Royal Court in El Escorialin which latter venue he continued his musical studies.
Soler took holy orders at the age of 23, and embarked on an extremely fandsngo routine as a Hieronymite in El Escorial, Madrid with hour workdays, in the course of which he produced more than compositions. Other pieces include Christmas villancicos  and Catholic liturgical music, including Masses.
He died in the monastery of San Lorenzo siler El Escorial ; no portraits of him are known to exist. Padre Soler’s most celebrated works are his keyboard sonataswhich are comparable to those composed by Domenico Scarlatti with whom he may have studied but are more varied in form than those of Scarlatti, with some pieces in three or four movements; Scarlatti’s pieces are in one mostly or two movements.
Soler’s sonatas were cataloged in the early twentieth century by Fr.
Samuel Rubio and so all have ‘R’ numbers assigned. Soler also composed concertosquintets for organ and stringsmotets masses and pieces for solo organ.
Soler’s Six Concertos for Two Organs are still very much in the repertoire and have often been recorded. A fandango once attributed to Soler, and probably more often performed than any other work of his, is now thought by some to be of doubtful authorship. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
