    Abstract:
    Catalan Mallorca-born musician Baltasar Samper i Marquès (1888-1966) was one of the most outstanding artists of the first third of the 20th century, forming part of the Catalan musical elite until the outbreak of the civil war. A long exile, first in France and later in Mexico, from where he never returned, has made him an almost forgotten figure, relegated to a full background, only with the exception of his work as an ethnomusicologist within the Obra del Cançoner Popular de Catalunya, well known nowadays. However, Samper was a prominent composer, whose knowledge of his work is now almost completely ignored, beyond some few compositions. In this article, we present a review of the research about Samper and the list of works known to date, and we publicize, for the first time, the initial, but complete description of the important documentary fonds of the musician kept for 50 years for his family in Mexico.
