One of the most often played and recorded pieces of classical guitar music must surely be Franisco Tarrega's Recuerdos del la Alhambra which translated means "Memories of the Alhambra" - Alhambra referring to the beautiful Moorish Palace in Granada. I have even heard it being referred to as "The Guitarists' National Anthem'!
Mastering the all important tremolo technique that this piece demands for a successful performance is no mean feat and can take years to perfect. I was a late starter learning tremolo and it took me a good 5 years at least before I felt comfortable with the technique. I'm sure it is different for other players and perhaps it comes more quickly for those who start at an early age.
I am proud of my recording of this famous Tarrega piece and found the experience of playing in the magnificent entrance foyer of the Auckland War Memorial Museum at night quite uplifting.
