Composer. Born José Juventino Policarpo Rosas Cadenas in Santa Cruz de Galeana, Guanajuato, México on January 25, 1868. His family moved to Mexico City where he studied at the National Conservatory. A short time after having been published in 1888, Sobre las olas (Over the Waves - Über den Wellen) became a worldwide hit, making Juventino Rosas the first Mexican composer whose music gained international recognition. In the few years that he composed, which were 6 or 7, he wrote 92 pieces of which 50 are known by name. He not only had the greatest number of editions published in foreign countries, arrangements for an incredibly wide range of instruments, but until the 1950s he was also the Mexican with the greatest number of sound recordings of his works. While in Cuba in 1894 as a member of a zarzuela company, he became ill and died on July 9, 1894, at the age of 26.
