Recuerdos de la Alhambra (Memories of the Alhambra)
This is the first of 2 entries by Spanish composers in the Ultimate Hall of Fame. This has appeared in every Hall of Fame chart and reached its highest position of number 130 in 2000. Tárrega is an Ultimate Hall of Fame One Hit Wonder.
The Recuerdos de la Alhambra was apparently dedicated to a friend, with Tárrega writing on the original manuscript, "since I cannot offer you a present of any worth on your birthday, accept this humble poetic impression, made on my soul by the grandiose marvel of the Alhambra of Granada we both admire."
