El Testamento d'Amèlia (by Miguel Llobet) played by Andreas Grossman. This piece is part of Llobet's Canciones Populares Catalanas. It has a very dark and dramatic theme similar to Federico Garcia Lorca's Blood Wedding. Despite the drama, it's a beautiful piece that showcases natural and artificial harmonics on the guitar.
Isla Verde (Fandango) written & performed by José Manuel León. The flamenco Fandango is a 3/4 style often written & performed using Spanish phrygian, major or minor key centers. It is originally a Spanish music and dance folk style that came into existence in the early 1700s (about 150 years before flamenco was recognized as a genre). It is the foundation for many styles of flamenco music. León's fandango is a very contemporary version of the fandango.
