Bartolomé Calatayud was born in 1882 on the island of Mallorca.[1] Initially taught by Antonio Mestres. He also studied harmony and composition with the great Mallorcan musicologist and composer D. Antonio Noguera. Bartolome was taught by Francisco Tárrega in Valencia.[2]

He gave concerts in Spain, France, Switzerland, Portugal and Algiers and toured South America with Spanish Chorus and Dance groups. In Majorca he composed many works for the classical guitar and taught the instrument[3] Many of his Guitar works are based on popular catalonian/majorcan folk music.

Although not as famous in the classical guitar world Bartolomé Calatayud has left much enjoyable and exciting music written for classical guitarists of all abilities. He taught many pupils in Majorca during his final years.[4] He died in 1973 at the age of 91.
