I was able to play what???

Browsing YouTube earlier, as people do the day after Christmas (I guess?), I stumbled across the very last piece I learned to play as a performance major.

I don’t know how I can remember it, but I do. The sheet music is tucked away in the vocal sheetmusic book I’d taken to Carnegie Hall ten years ago. I had apparently wanted to hold on to that folder as well as the last bit of sheet music assigned to me by my instructor, Rosendo Reyna.

Ten years ago. Oy.

Asturias – Juan Quesada

Astrurias (Leyenda) – performance by Juan Quesada, composed by Isaac Manuel Francisco Albéniz y Pascual (1892); transposed for guitar by Francisco de Asís Tárrega y Eixea

Hearing that piece again, and imagining what it must have felt like to play it – great way to end the year. *happy*
