Agustín Barrios-Mangoré: La Catedral (Allegro Solemne), age 36
There is a huge story behind this piece, but I don’t yet have the energy to tell it. I’ll do it later. However, this is an extremely popular and famous piece of music for guitar. I transcribed this for piano about 15 years ago but never quite finished, and I’ve been busy completing the piano music, which I will start teaching.
There are many fine recordings, and I just picked two that I think have contrasting interpretations.
