Generación del 51 is a designation for one of a series of "generations" of Spanish composers, identifying a group born between 1924 and 1938.

Members of this group of composers from the Basque and Castilian-speaking regions of Spain include[2]:

In their earlier works, members of this generation tended toward the avant-garde, with post-Webernian serialism evident in the work of Halffter and Luis de Pablo in particular. By the end of the 1970s a mellowing of their language becomes apparent, and during the 1980s many of them began to turn to tonality of one sort or another[2].

The Catalan members of this generation are associated with the reforming and renewing tendencies that emerged after the post-Civil War isolation [1][2]:

Soler's compositional palette involves serial techniques, and he is particularly noted for his dramatic music [2].
