There are only a handful of standard tremolo pieces in the regular classical repertoire – Tarrega’s “Recuerdos de la Alhambra”; Barrios’s “Una Limosnita Por Amor de Dios” and “Un Sueño en la Floresta”; Sainz de la Maza’s “Campanas del Alba”; Regondi’s “Reverie”….a guitarist spends a thousand hours perfecting the technique, but has only a few concert pieces to choose from.
This extended tremolo piece “There Were Stars” will challenge the most advanced player, and provides a fine canvas for expressive interpretation. It has a clear, pure melody in the tremolo. The ‘thumb’ part is not a simple arpeggio accompaniment, but has its own satisfying melodic passages that weave around the tremolo part and complement its harmonic movement.
The composer plays his own interpretation at - but would be the first to say that it needs the skills of a concert guitarist to bring out its full potential.
