Frey, E. H. - Spanish Dance

Post by williamgroome » Tue Aug 31, 2010 1:07 am

A little something off the beaten path from romantic times. American guitarist/composer E.H. Frey with his "Spanish Dance" from 1892. I found this in an issue of S.S. Stewart's Banjo and Guitar Journal.

Good morning William,

Best wishes, V :D :bravo:

Thanks for sharing this - I've never heard of it or of the composer.

What a delightful little piece, I can see why you chose to play it for us. Do you know where we can get the score? I know that others as well as me would enjoy trying our hand at this piece. I think that I'll just listen to it again. :wink:
Thank you for giving us this opportunity to hear you play, I really enjoyed hearing you.

:merci:

Thanks Sean and Kay. Most of the American composers from the 1800s to early 1900s will be unknown to most guitarists. That era of American music has basically been forgotten. Kay, you can find the score here...https://urresearch.rochester.edu/instit ... onNumber=1. Scroll down to the Feb/Mar 1892 issue of S.S. Stewart's Banjo and Guitar Journal. You might also enjoy reading about what the guitar/banjo scene was like then. There are over 40 issues to freely download and read/play from. All this music is in the public domain.
