Celil Refik Kaya Plays Sevilla by Albeniz

Celil Refik Kaya plays Sevilla from Suite Española, Op. 47 by Spanish composer Isaac Albéniz (1860-1909) originally for piano. This comes via his YouTube channel. Nice clear playing with some excellent phrasing and articulations. He’s really great at switching from raw aggressive playing to sweet and warm contrasts. Wonderful.

There are a few sheet music editions of Suite Espanola on Amazon, I’d maybe look at the Barrueco edition or the Llobet/Tarrega as a starting point and then make your own comparing to the piano original.
