For nearly 400 years the guitar has been synonymous with Spain. From its early relatives, the vihuela and the Baroque guitar, through to the present day concert classical instrument (and of course, the flamenco guitar), the guitar has been a constant inspiration to Spanish composers, non guitarists and guitarists alike.

Luis Milan, Santiago de Murcia, Fernando Sor and Francisco Tarrega were all masters of their instrument and their music represents the high point of each period. Domenico Scarlatti was an Italian who lived for many years in Spain where he wrote over 600 sonatas for the harpsichord, many of which are quite at home on the guitar. Isaac Albeniz wrote primarily for the piano and whilst most of his inspiration came from the flamenco music of Andalucia, the "Capricho Catalan" is unusual as it represents the northern area of Catalonia.
