As one of the leaders in the renaissance of Spanish music at the turn of the twentieth century, Isaac Albéniz was regarded as the founder of the Spanish "national school." Always fascinated with the music of Andalucia, Albeniz composed numerous small but beautifully performed portraits of his native Spain. These brightly colored piano pictures of his native land are sufficient reason for him to be called "the Liszt of Spanish music." Six pieces or "pages from an album" from his opus 165 "España" appear in this volume for solo guitar, as they have been transcribed and arranged by John Griggs in notation only.
