GASPAR SANZ

I like to thank Malcolm Christie for the picture.

4thApril 1640 --- 1710

I like to thank Malcolm Christie for providing the biography, thank you.

Born in the Village of Calanda on 4th April 1640 in Aragon, Sanz was a priest as well as an excellent Spanish guitarist.

He studied and taught at the univercity of Salamanca, where he was professor of music. As well as his music - which was mostly dance forms such as canarios, the folia and the espanoleta - Sanz wrote a book Instruction de Musica sobre guitarra espanola (1674), although for a five double stinged guitar, not the current six single string spanigh guitar.

Sanz traveled widely, including Italy. He died in 1710 in Madrid.
