Capricho Arabe (Senata) by Francisco Tarrega (1852-1909)

Francisco Tarrega Tárrega is considered to have laid the foundations for 20th century classical guitar and for increasing interest in the guitar as a recital instrument. Tárrega preferred small intimate performances over the concert stage. Some believe this was because he played without the nails needed for volume. Others say this was related to his childhood trauma.

Capricho Arabe has musical challenges which require further virtuosic demands. This composition, as do most of his works, blend traditional Spanish melodies and rhythms with the Romantic Style that was still popular during Tarrega’s Time. Besides being a virtuoso guitarist, Tarrega was also an excellent pianist. Early in his career he often performed half of a conceet on piano and the other half on the guitar.
