Espana Romantica Vol.3 Folk & Flamenco Pieces
Anthology of guitar music by Spanish Masters of the 19th century
After the height of glory reached in the first decades of the nineteenth century, the guitar in Europe underwent a slow and relentless decline which distanced it from the concert halls. The music for guitar in Spain, as well as referring in style to the ancient splendours of the classical period and to the new free forms of Romanticism such as the
Nocturnos, drew from the folklore heritage, offering pieces of clearly popular tradition.
The selection here gathers together music by Spanish guitarists who were alive after the death of Dionisio Aguado (Madrid, 1784-1849) and who composed throughout the second half of the nineteenth century up until the beginning of the twentieth, leaving to Francisco Tárrega (Villareal, Castellón, 1852 – Barcellona, 1909), the task of finally restoring to the guitar the role it once had.
