Recuerdos de la Alhambra Tarrega Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Recuerdos de la Alhambra is Spanish meaning Memories of the Alhambra.  The Alhambra is a vast fortress on a hill above Granada, in southern Spain. Within its fortified walls there is a castle, several palaces, a magnificent church, and extensive beautiful gardens with numerous fountains. It has a long history of occupation by the Moors, for around 800 years, and the intricate mosaics and architectural style bear witness to the huge influence of this Muslim period. It was eventually recaptured in 1492 by the Spanish Christian rulers Ferdinand V of Aragon and Isabella of Castile.

Tarrega must have been thoroughly enchanted by this magnificent and unique place, and inspired to compose this evocative music for solo guitar.
