This is how you play Albeniz: perfect interpretation...the 16th notes for example in measures 48-52 are done accurately and correctly, very difficult to do this on guitar. Ricardo Vines was our dear Enrique Granados' best and most famous student and fellow countryman from Catalan. I have the cutest picture hanging in my music study of a young Granados with his arm around an even younger Vines...He was also in Llobet's circle of friends, another Catalan. Hmm, Catalan...Catalina? Wonder if the island off the coast of So. Cal. was named after Catalan??

Thanks, I enjoyed that.
However I don't like the ornamentation and some of the quicker passages, it sounds as though they're all played with the sustain pedal down, a campanella effect that I find distracting.
The guitar, causes dreams to weep.
The sobs of lost souls, escape from its round mouth.
And like the tarantula, it weaves a great star
To snare the sighs,
Which float inside its dark wooden cistern
- Lorca
