A selection of 33 pieces composed by the Spaniard, Francisco Tárrega, one of the fathers of modern guitar. Although the corpus of his works is not particularly large, after a careful process of selection this anthology includes all his most famous compositions, from Lágrima to his ever popular Capricho árab and the achingly beautiful Recuerdos de la Alhambra, not to mention his Gran vals a short phrase of which has been used for a well-known mobile phone ringtone. The tracks are organised into 4 genres, reflecting the full nature of Tárrega’s works for guitar: the pieces inspired by the Arabian/Andalusian tradition, the romantic ones, his studies and his free reworking of repertoire pieces by other composers.
