Sonatine Op.71, no.1 by Giuliani. This is written in a ‘classic’ 19th century style, exploring right hand patterns and arpeggio technique, pulse, subdivision of the beat and the musical effect of the texture created with these patterns.

Asturias by Albeniz. This is a complicated and difficult piece but here are some ways for all of us to have a go and achieve aspects (or all) of the technique and musical atmosphere. A fantastic piece for the guitar…written for the piano!
