El Colibrí (Classical Guitar)

El Colibrí. Composed by Argentinian composer and guitarist Julio Sagreras (1879-1942) and performed by John Williams.

The word “colibrí” in Spanish means hummingbird and listening to this piece gives the listener a clear sense of Sagreras’ impressionistic intention. Sagreras was a very prolific composer and this piece is among his most famous works. It is a virtuosic piece that showcases arpeggios and picados (alternating I&M fingers for scales).
