Fantasía para un gentilhombre (Fantasy for a Gentleman) is a concerto for guitar and orchestra by the Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo. It is Rodrigo's second most popular work after the famous Concierto de Aranjuez.

The four movements were based on six short dances for solo guitar by the 17th century Spanish composer Gaspar Sanz, taken from a three-volume work (1674, 1675, 1697) now commonly known as Instrucción de música sobre la guitarra española (Musical Instruction on the Spanish Guitar) (Donis 2005:75). Most of the movements retain the names that Sanz originally gave them. Rodrigo expanded on Sanz's themes to produce a work lasting more than 20 minutes.

Rodrigo composed the concerto in 1954 at the request of guitarist Andrés Segovia, who evidently was the gentilhombre referenced in the title (Kamhi de Rodrigo 1992:173–174, cited in Donis 2005:74). Segovia took the solo part at the premiere performance on March 5, 1958, in San Francisco (Donis 2005:75).
