La vida breve, Spanish Dance No.1
for classical guitar

John Williams and Julian Bream“La vida breve”, is an opera in two acts by Manuel de Falla. Particular thing of this work is that there are more musical parts that those sung. Very performed is the “Spanish Dance No. 1″, with the violin but also in guitar duo, performed like Paco de Lucia for example. But two prominent guitarists like John Williams and Julian Bream have interpreted it. There are also transcriptions for solo guitar, like that of Nicholas Hall. I must say it is really difficult to play this piece alone, but the guitarist Gohar Vardanyan is really good!
