Lágrima is one of the most popular pieces for classical guitar. Written by Francisco Tárrega it is a romantic miniature that makes beautiful use of parallel thirds and tenths. The word Lágrima is spanish for “teardrop” and Tárrega composed the piece in London while he was longing for his home country of Spain.It is a great example of the expressiveness that the classical guitar can produce and even though it is small in stature it is a masterpiece.The repertoire workbook takes you through all of the important aspects of the piece including:
- Complete edition of the score
- Guide fingers
- Campanella fingering
- Phrasing and expression
- Keys and Form
- Harmonic Analysis
I have taught this piece to several students and performed it myself for many years. This book provides all the information that I use in my lessons, and provides a great structure for both student and teacher. It is perfect for your iPad or tablet, and can also be easily printed out for use as a hard copy.
