Bulerías “Ahí Te Quedas”.The inclusion of this piece, or, to be more precise, live recording of a traditional juerga could strike you as somewhat odd on such a modern and sophisticated CD. Nevertheless, it has a profound meaning, an important message to all the flamenco aficionados.
Turkish song “ Bir Ömürlük Misafir” In this piece, for the first time in the history of flamenco guitar transcriptions, the full orchestral chart is provided for those who have Sibelius or Finale software. They can either scan or enter manually the chart into their computers in order to be able to enjoy playing this piece with the full orchestra sound.
This piece, composed in the modern key of D# Hijaz, is tremendously difficult, both rhythmically and technically.
Taranta “Macael”This beautiful and very emotional taranta is a perfect example of the evolution of Tomatito’s harmonic and melodic language. Although full of modern chords and scales, this piece expresses the most ancestral sentiments with the flamenco purity so characteristic of Tomatito.
