Joaquín Rodrigo, el niño que soñó la música (The boy who imagined music)
The gripping story of a young blind boy who dreamed of being a musician and went on to become a great composer. His life was as exciting as a novel. His journey through life is an example of overcoming hardships.
The boy who imagined music narrates in the first person the story of a child who rose above his physical handicap of blindness to triumph in life and become one of Spain’s most universal composers. The narration is accompanied by numerous fragments of Joaquín Rodrigo’s pieces.
