La Guerra Civil Española le obliga a realizar un largo paréntesis
pero cuando ésta termina, a los quince días, ya forma parte
de un nuevo grupo: La Orquesta España.
ÁUREO HERRERO (1904-1995)
e was born in 1904 (El Barraco-Ávila). His father, a professional musician, inculcated him his love to music and when he was six years old he played melodies on the piano, the bandurria and the guitar. At the lutheria Santos Hernandez he met the best guitar players and bow instrumentalists of that moment. He was introduced to a double bass teacher of the Teatro Real Orchestra who offered himself to give him classes. He learned very fast and after one year he already worked in the Price Theatre Orchestra. He started his training to join the Conservatory.
He studied harmony, counterpoint and finished the career of double bass studying with the most prestigious teachers of the moment. He met Andres Segovia, who taught him and some years later, sent him the students he could not teach himself because of his artistic commitments. In this way, Aureo Herrero became his most direct and genuine continuator. He was a member of the Arbós Orchestra of Madrid where he met important celebrities of symphonic music as Arbos himself, Spiteri, Ataulfo Argenta, Conrado del Campo, Gerardo Gombau, Juan Ruiz Casaux and where he became used to orchestral repertory during tours all around Spain and abroad. He met and got in touch with well known guitar players and composers Ángel Martín Pompey, Feliciano Bayón, Arcágel Fernández, Marcelo Barbero, Paulino Bernabé, Ángel Barrios, Alirio Diaz, Narciso Yepes, Leo Brouwer and Regino Sainz de la Maza; Aureo Herrero stood in for him some times at the Conservatory. He was a teacher at the North American School for several years; director of Spanish Instruments and guitar player at the orchestra of Columbia record company.
The Spanish Civil War obliged him to make a long break but 15 days after the war finished he was already a member of a new group: the Orquesta de España.
He retired. He received some students at his home, composed and adapted for guitar pieces of famous composers. The Ministry of Culture authorized him to choose and bring to Madrid choirs, plucked string orchestras and folklore groups. He travelled all around Spain for eight years and selected choirs from Santander, Zumaya. He has prepared some generations of concert performers (Rocio Herrero, Marcus Llerena, Antonio Dominguez, Theodore Norman, etc.) and important pedagogues.
He died in 1995 in Las Matas (Madrid).
