These popular works by Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710) originate from his Instrucción de música sobre la Guitarra Española for Baroque guitar. In 1954 Joaquín Rodrigo composed his guitar concerto Fantasía para un gentilhombre on themes from these works. A degree of arranging for modern guitar has taken place, including adding the sixth string of the modern guitar to complete logical musical lines. Besides that I have tried to keep to the original as often as possible.
