Johannes Moller Plays Asturias by Albeniz


Johannes Moller, GuitarSwedish guitarist Johannes Moller Plays Asturias (Leyenda) by Isaac Albéniz (1860-1909). This comes via Moller’s YouTube Channel where you can check more great playing and his own compositions as well. Well played with a few nice/new touches and good colouring in the middle section. Asturias is one of the most popular and often played works in the guitar repertoire despite the fact that it’s a transcription and originally for piano. For all you new students out there you’ll want to note that Albeniz never actually wrote for guitar even though we love transcribing and arranging his works.

There is a free sheet music edition right here on this site: Asturias by Albeniz (PDF).
