Recuerdos de la Alhambra

Postby ChuckH » 19 Sep 2018 23:11

Recuerdos de la Alhambra (Memories of the Alhambra) is a classical guitar piece composed in 1896 in Granada by Spanish composer and guitarist Francisco Tárrega. It uses the classical guitar tremolo technique often performed by advanced players. I was wowed when I heard this at a wedding reception many years ago but only recently learnt of its name and got a photocopy of the sheet music as written for a classical guitarist which I had to figure out for the organ. I have also played this on my Ringway 1000e (see the Classical Board), but this version was played on my AR 80 organ.

Hi Charles,

A very good performance of that classical guitar piece. Here is a clip of John Williams playing this (on guitar) .. with introduction by Les Dawson playing his version of Cavatina on piano!

Hi Charles

A very beautiful recording beautifully played.
I must say I preferred the Ringway recording you’ve made more though, with a much more realistic repeating guitar / mandolin.

Keep the music playing!
