Hi all , I´m posting this beatiful piece from Moreno Torroba. Torroba was a prolific spanish composer of Zarzuelas ( spanish operas ) , simphonies and guitar pieces. Among his large production he composed the "Castillos de España suite" with a buch of pieces dedicated to Spanish Castels. This piece is Torija, by the way a precious castel nor very far from Madrid, worth visiting.
Hello all, I don´t see many activity in this forum.....anyhow I´m posting another piece with very spanish flavour: Boceto Andaluz from Bartolome Calatayud.
Actually Boceto Andaluz ( you can translate it from spanish as Andalusian sketch) is a sort of Soleá ( flamenco palo) chord progression with some falsetas ( falsetas are the melodic lines connecting the chord progressions) . This is a simple piece but with very flamenco flavour.....enjoy
