Francisco Tarrega (1852-1909)

This enchanting musical gem is tinged with melancholy-possibly inspired by Georges Bizet's "Je crois entendre encore" from The Pearl Fishers.  Composed in 1886, the guitar tremolo study Recuerdos de la Alhambra is without doubt Tárrega's best-known piece. It evokes memories of the Moorish hill fortress in Granada, Spain.
