Joaquin Rodrigo

Joaquin Rodrigo was born in Sagunto (Valencia) on St. Cecilia's day, the patron saint of music, 22nd November 1901. At the age of three he lost his sight almost completely as a result of an epidemic of diphtheria. This misfortune undoubtedly led him to towards music. At the age of eight he began his first musical studies: solfeggio, piano and violin, and at the age of sixteen harmony and composition with teachers from the Conservatory in Valencia: Antich.
