Joyous upbeat waltz for solo classical guitar written around 90 years before a few bars of it became the most popular ringtone in history when used by Nokia in the 1990s. A classic that has become a digital classic!
An advanced tremolo technique is required to perform this complex and well known guitar piece. 'Memories of the Alhambra', transports you to a different place and has been used in productions such as the film, 'The Killing Fields', the American TV show, 'The Sopranos' and the British TV show, 'Out of Town'.
At that time the clarinet was in a completely different guise than today's, which was only reached in the middle of the 19th century. Nevertheless, Mozart was able to make optimal use of this instrument by drawing original and expressive sounds. The concerto is regarded as one of his best works and is of fundamental importance for clarinet lovers and clarinetists. It was originally composed for Bassettos Horn, an instrument close to Mozart's heart, which he almost always included in his chamber music works and in any case as a soloist: Of the first version, only a well-developed fragment of the only first movement has survived, along with some very incomplete sketches of the second and top movements. The accompanying ensemble is chamber music: oboes, trumpets and trombones are excluded whose timbre could have competed with that of the solo instrument. The clarinet expresses itself with melodies that are sometimes soft, sometimes dramatic, but the tone is always calm. Of the three movements that make up the concerto, the proverb is that in which the melody touches the highest peaks and reaches moments of intimacy and moving melancholy.
Short and sweet, this uplifting and delicate solo classical guitar piece is beautifully light and melodic. Airy and graceful, it is the perfect track for romantic encounters and serenading your loved one.
Melodic, stately, romantic. Like an old English mansion, suitable for royalty or period drama.
