Tune of the Day: Canarios
Gaspar Sanz was an Aragonese composer, guitarist and organist of the Baroque period. This lively composition for solo guitar is one of 90 pieces of varying complexity to be found in the composer's masterpiece collection Instrucción de música sobre la guitarra española y método de sus primeros rudimentos hasta tañerla con destreza (“Music instruction manual on the Spanish guitar and method on the first rudiments that concern playing with dexterity”), published in three volumes between 1674 and 1697.
As indicated by the title, this piece is a dance from the Canary Islands, a Spanish possession off the southeast coast of Spain.
