Asturias (Leyenda) by Isaac Albeniz on Classical Guitar and Piano

A year ago, I had the privilege of hearing Tariq Harb play live in Edmonton during the Edmonton Classical Guitar Society (ECGS) concert season. He played Asturias, a popular guitar piece that I have held dear since the 1980s when my father learned to play it decently well.

Tariq Harb’s style of playing is smooth and fluid with seamless transitions. His version of Asturias is the best I have heard to date.
