Iconic piece Memories of the Alhambra – Ana Vidovic

Guitarist Ana Vidovic plays Recuerdos de la Alhambra by Francisco Tárrega

Recuerdos de la Alhambra or Memories of the Alhambra is an iconic piece in the classical guitar repertoire and one of the most recognisable and transcribed pieces for guitar. Written in 1896 by the great Francisco Tarrega after visiting the Alhambra in Granada.

The Recuerdos de la Alhambra was apparently dedicated to a friend, with Tárrega writing on the original manuscript, “since I cannot offer you a present of any worth on your birthday, accept this humble poetic impression, made on my soul by the grandiose marvel of the Alhambra of Granada we both admire”.
