Notes
Oriental, Op. 232, No. 2, is a composition by Isaac Albéniz. [1]

It was written for piano, in the key of D minor, as part of the suite Chants d’Espagne. Since it has been transcribed for classical guitar by Miguel Llobet it has become a notable piece for classical guitar, although not as popular as many of his other pieces. Andres Segovia also recorded his own version of Oriental in the 1950s and it has also been performed by Stefano Grondona (as shown in the video below)

Romantic Era. 141 Measues. 13 Pages. 3/4 Time Signature. Key of D minor. Drop D.
