Canarios - Gaspar Sanz
Add To Cart


Gaspar Sanz was born in Spain in the 17th century and during his life he became an influential Baroque guitar composer with many of his pieces. Canarios is a hugely popular piece and it has such a cheerful joi de vivre feel about it. Every time I play I can't help but feel happy about life in general.
