He went almost completely blind when he was 3 years old. He studied music, including piano and violin. People know him best for his guitar compositions and using it as a concert instrument.
Here are two of his most famous works.
Concierto de Aranjuez, 2nd Movement (Adagio)
Fantasia Para Un Gentilhombre
I LOVE it when the guitar is featured with the orchestra! It's so dramatic!
