In the last two decades of his life, Torroba came to serve as a cultural ambassador for Spain. He did this not only as a composer and conductor but also as someone increasingly involved in cultural administration. He became president of the Sociedad General de Autores de España and director of the Real Academia de Bellas Artes. His administrative legerdemain had a decided impact on issues of copyright, performance, and recording during a period in which technological advances were changing the rules of the game. This period witnessed his increasing collaboration with the Romero family of guitarists, who premiered and recorded his concertos. Though he ceased composing zarzuelas, he continued to conduct and record them. Torroba did maintain a place on the stage with several ballets and a final opera, El poeta. This scene closes with the composer’s sudden illness, death, and funeral.
