Barrios – Un sueno en la floresta

Un sueno en la floresta – a dream in the forest (or “glade”)

The glorious romantic melody from Agustin Barrios, an early 20th Century Chopin of the guitar who combined European classical music with influences from his native Paraguay.

A highly developed example of tremolo technique to create a flowing melody with a contrapuntal bass line, surrounding an ethereal “dream” section in the centre of the piece.

Live in Beaminster, 2016.
