Francesc Alió i Brea (Spanish Francisco Alió; Barcelona, 27 March 1862 – Barcelona, 31 March 1908) was a Catalan composer. In 1892, he wrote the music of Els Segadors, the Catalan national anthem, based on a folk tune, in his Cançons populars catalanes. He was one of the generation turning to Catalan song in the 1890s.[1]
