History

Antonio Romero y Andia (1815-1886), a distinguished clarinettist and inventor, founded his company in 1856. It was very active for the rest of the 19th century, publishing popular pieces for piano and guitar, educational works such as his own Método completo de clarinete as well as many works by Isaac Albéniz (1860—1909). Romero also ran a concert hall, the Salon Romero from 1884 to 1896.

In 1898 the firm was bought by Casa Dotesio, which after several more acquisitions became, in 1914, Unión Musical Española, remaining Spain 's major music publisher for the rest of the 20th century.
