Program Notes

Although the original score of this pasodoble was reportedly written (possibly under a different title) by the British bandmaster Reginald Ridewood (1907-1942), Jaime Texidor undoubtedly copyrighted the work and arranged for its publication by Editorial Musica Moderna in Madrid and, in 1935, by Boosey & Hawkes in London. In April 1936, an ad by Boosey & Hawkes in The Musical Progress and Mail included the title Amparito Roca followed by a translation, “The Sheltered Cliff.” The present conductor of the Baracaldo Municipal Band, Juan Esteve Galán, has stated, however, that Texidor dedicated the pasodoble to a girl named Amparito (diminutive of Amparo) Roca, and that she still lives in that area. Regardless of its origin, researchers agree that Amparito Roca is still one of the band world’s most popular pasodobles.
