Good morning everyone. Is there a better way to start the day than listening to Spanish guitar music? I doubt it.
Córdoba [arr. guitar]
Albeniz was one of the greatest pianists in history, and while he initially gained popularity from his salon ditties, he solidified his place in the repertoire with fantastic suites that showed a mix of impressionism and nationalism. His greatest achievement in those categories as to be the four books of Iberia, one of the most difficult piano pieces in the standard repertoire. However, this piece comes from an early piano suite, Chants d’Espagne, and it gives off Albeniz’s impression of one of his favorite cities in the country. Córdoba is, at its core, a city of rich cultural history, and holds the Mosque-Cathedral, one of the greatest achievements of Moorish architecture
