    5:06MARCH 29, 2017

    Francisco Tárrega transcribed Chopin’s very popular Nocturne Op. 9 no. 1 at the end of the nineteenth century. This adaptation seems to contradict one of the characteristics of Chopin’s output, inextricably linked to the piano. However, it reveals the importance of transcriptions in the transmission of certain repertories.

    Francisco Tárrega (1852-1909) was one of the most outstanding guitarists of his time. He made numerous arrangements that helped to endow his instrumental with a “classical” repertory. Among his most significant transcriptions are the works of Chopin, seldom performed today, which reflect the important place the legacy of the Polish composer already held in the period.Francisco Tárrega (1852-1909) was one of the most outstanding guitarists of his time.
