Romance de los Pinos is a beautiful piece composed by the Spanish composer, Federico Moreno Torroba. This piece comes from a larger group of pieces called, Castles of Spain composed for the guitar virtuoso, Andres Segovia. I’ve always loved this piece of music as well as many of the pieces from this suite.
Melancholia comes from a suite of pieces I composed back in 2012-2013 called, The Year of the Guitar. My goal for composing these pieces was to compose a group of guitar pieces for the intermediate-level guitarist. This particular one uses a lot of artificial harmonics, which is a really cool effect you can get on the guitar.
