Isaac_AlbénizIsaac Manuel Francisco Albéniz y Pascual (Spanish pronunciation: [iˈsak alˈβeniθ]; 29 May 1860–18 May 1909) was a Spanish virtuoso pianist, composer, and conductor. He is one of the foremost composers of the Post-Romantic era who also had a significant influence on his contemporaries and younger composers. He is best known for his piano works based on Spanish folk music idioms.

Transcriptions of many of his pieces, such as Asturias (Leyenda), Granada, Sevilla, Cadiz, Córdoba, Cataluña, and the Tango in D, are important pieces for classical guitar, though he never composed for the guitar. The personal papers of Albéniz are preserved, among other institutions, in the Biblioteca de Catalunya. Read more via his Wiki Page.

  1. THis is great ! But I am following you at page 46 of your method (volume 1). I hope you will have a detail guideline about this version someday. In fact, I prefer the version played by Sharon Isbin (here: Its like you are drinking a red wine. I heard John 16 years ago but he played it quick and strong not like Andrea Sagovia.

    Great thanks any way. A silent online student of yours from Vietnam.

  2. Mr Werner, would you please make a piece of La Caterdral for intermediate. I do like the rythm played by Mc Alister. Very much thank you.
