Joaquin Rodrigo’s very popular “Fantasia para un Gentilhombre” was inspired by another composer’s music.  Rodrigo took themes from a 17th-century Spanish musician and priest and expanded them into his concerto for guitar and orchestra.  Earlier, we heard the piece that Rodrigo used as the basis for the concerto’s final movement.  We’re looking for either the title of this work or the name of the Spanish composer from the 1600s who wrote it.
