Francisco Tárrega – Free Sheet Music PDFs

Francisco Tarrega Here are some free sheet music links for Romantic ear composer and guitarist Francisco Tarrega (1852-1909). I make these pages to attract people to the site and offer an index in one place. “Historically Francisco Tárrega is of immense significance in the development of the guitar over the last two centuries, in terms of both technical innovations and compositions… Francisco Tárrega was the most influential Spanish virtuoso performer of the nineteenth century. His output was modest, with just 78 original scores and 120 transcriptions—mostly for his own use—of the great classical compositions. Tárrega was also the first great arranger for guitar, transcribing works from composers such as J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Berlioz, Chopin, Grieg, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Schumann, and Wagner, as well as pieces from Albéniz and Malats and other Spanish contemporaries.” (Bio via Naxos)
