ALBÉNIZ MUSIC FOR GUITAR

Even though the Spanish composer Isaac Aléniz (1860-1909) has not actually written for guitar, his music has been strongly inspired by the rich sounds of this instrument. Indeed, the arpegios that appear in his work Granada from Suite Española Op. 47 remind the typical playing of the guitar. Thus, the guitar transcription is very idiomatic seeming very natural and original for the instrument.

Here, then an interpretation I made of Granada!

Granada was composed before 1900 and was first transcribed by Miguel Llobet. Here I played the transcription by Manuel Barrueco.
