Enrique Granados Arranged by Robert Longfield
One of Granados’ most popular works, originally for piano, and more famously transcribed for several other instruments, including guitar. The Spanish Dance No. 5 is a study of contrasts: lyrical, expressive melodies over staccato accompaniments, dramatic changes in dynamics, and tempos which fluctuate from Allegro con brio to Andante. Careful attention to all of the details inherent in making these contrasts will help to infuse the music with its characteristic Spanish flair and bravura.
