Memories of the Alhambra
Memories of the Alhambra (usually referred to by its Spanish original title, Recuerdos de la Alhambra) is a guitar piece written in 1896 by Francisco Tárrega. It is notable for relying almost exclusively on the tremolo technique, which makes it a challenging work: the tremolo creates a sustained melodic line while the thumb of the right hand executes a series of arpeggios. Recuerdos de la Alhambra has been used several time as incidental music, and it has been arranged multiple times for instrumental ensembles.
