Born on 5 May 1846, Chueca entered the conservatory at eight years of age, but his family later obligated him to abandon music to study medicine. He was arrested in 1866 as a participant in the student demonstrations against the Narváez government. While he spent three days in the prison of San Francisco in Madrid, he composed several waltzes that he entitled Lamentos de un preso (Lamentations of a Prisoner). Later, Francisco Asenjo Barbieri helped compose and direct the works, and their success helped Chueca leave medicine and devote himself once more to music. He worked as a pianist and directed the orchestra of the Teatro Variedades. Chueca had an intuitive grace with melody and rhythm that produced many light and pleasant works. Yet, he was more schooled in the sciences than in music, and thus always worked with a collaborator like the aforementioned Barbieri, Tomás Bretón, and especially Joaquín Valverde who harmonized and orchestrated many of his works.
