Memories of the Alhambra (Recuerdos de la Alhambra)
- Great for teachers
Composed in 1886, the tremolo study 'Recuerdos de la Alhambra' is without doubt Tarrega's best-known piece. It evokes memories of the Moorish citadel located on a hill in the Spanish Granada.
Thanks to the present arrangement, the enchanting gem with its slightly melancholy tinge - perhaps inspired by Georges Bizet's 'Je crois entendre encore' from The Pearl Fishers - is now also available for instruments other than the guitar.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
