Fandango de Huelva (fandango de Huelva). Composed and performed by Victor Franco (w/ guest David Dominguez, percussion). This piece doesn't seem to have a title other than the style it's written in (i.e., fandango de Huelva). The Fandango style in flamenco has 3 sub-styles: fandango abandola'o, fandango natural and fandango de Huelva (this one). The Fandango de Huelva is a fandango that was developed in the Province of Huelva, Spain. There are more variation of fandangos de Hueva than there are of any other style in flamenco. When sung, the style is relatively simple and is considered more of a popular flamenco style. For solo guitar, on the other hand, it is very complex in both rhythm, harmony and technique.
La Catedral: 1st Movement (by Agustin Barrios Mangoré). Performed by Raphaël Feuillâtre. Barrios' entire suite, "La Catedral" is considered one of the most important works in the classical guitar repertoire. The 2 most popular movements are numbers 1 & 3. Movement 1 is the prélude to the entire suite.
