Vicente Arregui — Andrés Segovia Archive

Composer Pedro Sanjuán | Andrés Segovia Archive | Roberto Moronn Pérez
From the liner notes of the new FRESH! From Reference Recordings release Andrés Segovia Archive: Spanish Composers featuring guitarist Roberto Moronn Pérez:

Vicente Arregui


The composer Vicente Arregui was a native of Madrid with origins in Navarre. He turned his attention to the guitar in the final years of his life, especially 1924-25. He wrote five pieces in which we can clearly hear reflected aspects of late Spanish Romanticism, in particular salon music which made much use of both piano and guitar. In one of his concerts Segovia tried out at least one of these pieces—it is unknown which—only to later abandon all of them. Re-found, they stand in their own right alongside the works of Moreno-Torroba.
