Impromptu Para Arpa is a piece for solo Harp. It was composed in 1959 following a commission from the Royal Music Conservatory of Madrid, and first performed by Ana María Martini Gil in the same year.
Joaquin Rodrigo (1901-1999) was born in Valencia, and lost his sight to diphtheria at the age of three, which is believed to have heightened his hearing and inspired him to pursue a musical career. He began to study music five years later, and became one of Spain’s most distinguished composers, musicologists, and pedagogues.
