Asturias-Leyenda, Preludio
Isaac Albeniz - Adapted by B. Michael Williams
Price: $8.95
Asturias-Leyenda, Preludio

Originally scored for piano, this prelude garnered worldwide popularity when Andrés Segovia transcribed and performed the work on guitar in the 1920s. Leyenda has since become known by some as the “quintessential Spanish guitar piece.” The vibraphone, due to its capability to sustain chords, execute independent melodic lines and arpeggios, and effect harmonics, is particularly suitable for realizing a guitar-influenced version of Albeniz’ original prelude for piano. Audience friendly yet challenging for the performer! adv. high school/college.
