The tremolo study 'Recuerdos de la Alhambra' composed in 1896 is, without doubt, the most famous piece by the Spanish composer and guitarist Francisco Tárrega, bringing back memories of the fortified Moorish palace situated on a hill in the Spanish city of Granada. The charming, slightly melancholy melody - perhaps inspired by Georges Bizet's 'Je crois entendre encore' from 'The Pearl Fishers' - makes it ideal for performing with other melodic instruments and piano.
