Recuerdos De La Alhambra

Recuerdos De La Alhambra.

I’ll translate that for my non Spanish speaking friends. It means Memories of Alhambra which is a classical piece arranged for guitar as well as other instruments.

Composed by Spanish composer and guitarist Francisco Tárrega (1852-1909). It requires the tremolo technique and is often performed by advanced players.

The piece was written for and dedicated to Tárrega’s patron Concepción Gómez de Jacoby in 1899, commemorating their visit to the Alhambra palace and fortress complex in Granada, Spain. It was originally entitled Improvisación !A Granada¡ Cantiga Árabe. 

Nana Mouskouri has performed a vocal version and Sarah Brightman has performed a re-adapted vocal version in her album Classics. Unfortunately both were unavailable to accompany me due to Covid 19 restrictions, however, I hope you enjoy my version of the piece.
