Just Like Asturias

March 16, 2013

The music of Isaac Albéniz is genius. Like AsturiasGranada was transcribed from piano to guitar, and of course sounds better that way. See what you think.

  1. I am thinking of la Alhambra and the garden of Generalife, I also want an orange …. the music is just too b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. Thank you.

      I’m happy you enjoy it. Please let me know if there are any pieces you would like me to post.

      • mmm, please don’t ask, I have very good mood today, I become super greedy as well : please post everything, except Handel (I don’t like him too much, in fact I quite dislike him). Is it possible?

      • journeythroughnews permalink

        Sure!

      • Also, if you post Baroque music, do make sure the musicians are true Baroque musicians, for the cello : not Yo Yo Ma, Rostropovich, Casals, Maisky …. but the genuine ones, could you manage?

        Yes, do you like Isserliss?

      • I don’t know him too much, how does he play Bach’s Cello Suite nr 2 Prelude, the last four bars? I can’t find it in YouTube, did he play all the double stops or the real thing?

  2. If you want to listen a great Baroque musician you have to listen Paolo Pandolfo (viola de gamba). He has a great recording of Bach cello suites. Anyway Giardino Armonico is a good Italian early music ensemble. About Isserliss is a great cellist with a perfect technique and he is a brilliant musician but in baroque I prefer Anner Bylsma. I hope this information help you.

      Thank you for your advice…very insightful. I will do what I can!

  3. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing, it really does sound great on the guitar. Wasn’t this one in a movie? It sounds very familiar. Maybe it was in Vicky Cristina Barcelona?

      Perhaps…it is a popular composition by any standard! Glad you like it.
