Ernesto Lecuona (Guanabacoa, 1895-Tenerife. 1963) is the most widely known Cuban musician, distinguished by his versatility as a composer, pianist. orchestra director, music entrepreneur, and editor. Previous studies underline his contribution to lyrical t heater as an expression of Cuban identity, yet they usually pay scant attention to his only opera: El Sombrero de Yarey (1946). This lecture proposes a first approximation to Lecuona's score and eventually the analysis, reconstruction, and performance of his unpublished work.
