2. Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710)
Composer, guitarist, organist and priest, Sanz studied at the University of Salamanca, where he was later appointed Professor of Music. He wrote three volumes of tutorials for the baroque guitar that are still an important part of today's classical guitar repertory and have helped scholars understand the techniques of baroque guitar playing.
