Regino Sainz de la Maza

Regino Sainz de la Maza y Ruiz (born September 7 1896 in Burgos, died November 26, 1981 in Madrid) was a Spanish classical guitarist.

At age ten, he got his first guitar and started his musical studies with Santiago Landache (solfege), José Nicolás Quesada (piano), and Eugenio Rodríguez Pascual (guitar). Four years later, in 1910, his family moved to San Sebastián, where de la Maza studied piano with Germán Cendoya, harmony with Beltrán Pagola and guitar with Luis Soria. A year later he moved to Bilbao, where he studied with Hilarión Leloup. Aged eighteen, he performed at his first concert, at "Teatro Arriaga" of Bilbao.

He later moved to Barcelona, where he worked as a concert musician. There he befriended Miguel Llobet and Andrés Segovia. In 1920 he played for the first time in Madrid. A year later he toured South America, giving 90 concerts. In May 20, 1920 he was awarded a Golden Medal by the National University of Buenos Aires.

He befriended composer Antonio José Martínez Palacios, who dedicated his guitar compositions to de la Maza. He toured Europe, giving concerts in France in 1926, in Germany in 1927 and Great Britain in 1928. Five years later he toured South America for the second time; Uruguay, Argentina, and Brazil.

On December 19, 1930 he married Josefina de la Serna, daughter of the writer Concha Espina, at the "Real Basílica de Monasterio de El Escorial".

In 1935, he was named professor of guitar at the Madrid Conservatory.

On November 6, 1940 he played the guitar at the premiere of Rodrigo's "Concierto de Aranjuez" in Barcelona conducted by César Mendoza Lasalle. Rodrigo dedicated the "Concierto de Aranjuez" to Regino Sainz de la Maza. [cite book
