Just As Good as the Concierto de Aranjuez

March 7, 2013

Part of the same rich Spanish classical tradition to which Joaquín Rodrigo belonged , Isaac Albéniz knew how to compose music. The work below, Asturias, is named for a beautiful Northern Spain province. Originally composed for piano, it was transcribed for guitar, and for good reason! Played here by John Williams (the same guy who performed the Concierto), Asturias is a work that one can listen to a thousand times.

    I’m happy you like it! It’s a great piece, isn’t it?

    So much more gratifying on the classic guitar than piano.

  4. Probably my favorite piece for guitar.
