Francisco Javier Garcia Fajer(1730-1809), Spanish composer of Italianate galante school. He moved to Italy and studied there. He returned home as maestro de capilla of la Seo in Zaragoza 1756 till his death in 1809. Fajer was out of favor for many years in Spain due to his promotion of Italianate musical idiom, however in recent years he has been rehabilitated and taken on his own merit as a galante composer.
