Abstract:
Composed and performed by Alex Abisheganaden, and recorded live at Sonic Studios on 14th August 2000, this is a short work written in the Spanish style, in the manner of a guitarist accompanying flamenco dancers. While it does not quote from Spanish traditional tunes, it simulates quite authentically the spirit of rhythmic dances from Spain. The guitarist is required to strum very vigorously at parts, and to keep strict timing throughout the dance. Alex Abisheganaden met with the great Spanish guitarist Andres Segovia in London during the 1960s, and this meeting provided him with the inspiration for this piece.
