Abstract Almost everyone has heard the melody of "The loveliest night of the year," and just a few know that the song is an English version of a Mexican waltz, but who would ever have imagined that it was written by a Mexican-Indian composer, Juventino Rosas (1868-1894). It is his very best-known piece, originally titled "Sobre las olas" ("Over the waves"). Unlike his world-famous melody, very little is known beyond the borders of Mexico about the composer and musician who died at the age of 26, having devoted a scant decade of his life to composing.
