Memories of a Spanish Castle
A delightful combination of lyrical themes with rhythmic exuberance and folk-like melodies. “Viva Espania” is based on themes by two 19th-century Spanish composers. The opening theme is from “Recuerdos de la Alhambra” by Francisco Tarrega. That piece is a traditional Spanish waltz and was inspired by the famous Alhambra Castle in Grenada. The second theme is by Isaac Albeniz from a suite of music for the piano, “Songs of Spain”, entitled “Leyenda”. This section, while still in 3/4 has a fiery exuberance much like one would expect from a flamenco guitarist, yet it’s very playable by young players. Authentic Spanish music that’s a terrific addition to any concert performance!
