Joaquín Rodrigo is one of Spain's most celebrated composers, particularly famous for his works for guitar. His rhapsodic solo guitar work Invocación y danza is an homage to the great Spanish composer Manuel de Falla, and it contains subtle quotes of Falla works such as the Three-Cornered Hat and El amor brujo, although the quotes are disguised in such a way as to be barely recognizable.
