   For those that speak and read Spanish, this wonderful book on the life and works of maestro Francisco Tarrega will give you hours of entertaining reading.. For those that don't speak or read Spanish, the large amount of photos, illustrations of manuscripts, concert programs, letters (early published editions and manuscripts of Capricho Arabe, etc.) that are a true delight to the eye, may motivate you to add this edition to your library. The Spanish language is the language of the guitar, and our guitaristic heritage is derived from mostly that entity of players, composers and maestros. I'm not trying lessen the contributions of the Italian, French, German, English and Russian guitarists, but undoubtedly the world today is at the current musicianship level due to the great influence of Tarrega. My teacher's teacher's teacher studied with the maestro (for example: Randy Osborne (1979-81) studied with Byron Pang (1966-70) who studied with Rey de la Torre (1932-35) who studied with Miguel Llobet.).


   This book is divided into 18 chapters and continues with an annex to include the catalog of works (publications and dated manuscripts) of the immortal maestro. Some of the chapters deal with the Antonio de Torres guitars, with one chapter on "La Leona" owned by Miguel Llobet.  The next to the last chapter is about the Centennial celebration in Valencia of Tarrega's birth in 1952. There are photos of Tarrega's students Josefina Robledo, Daniel Fortea, Emilio Pujol and Pepita Roca performing at the event.

For the companion sheetmusic book with a CD of Josefina Robledo (1892-1972) playing 5 pieces by the maestro see: Francisco Tarrega w/ CD

...Adrián Rius nos aporta luz en algunas de las cuestiones referentes a su entorno social, musical y biográfico a partir de las cuales deberían fijarse nuevas perspectivas y criterios con los cuales evaluar la obra de Tárrega tanto desde el punto de vista humano, artístico y didáctico... (Antonio Ripollés Mansilla)
