Asturias Leyenda by Norman Gatzke

There’s nothing quite like music with enriching and alluring history behind it. For example, Asturias Leyenda, is a musical piece written by Spanish composer, Isaac Albéniz and it has been transcribed and changed so much over the years. However, it has always been noted for it’s versatility as a piece of music; it’s quite, it’s loud, engaging and even quite delicate, when it comes to the later bars.

Check out this interpretation.

Anyway, I think I got a little lost in what I was saying… History!

15 years ago, a concert guitarist, named Norman Gatzke and producer Martin Grimm begun their first music project. As time has gone on, they have both gathered gleaned (hah) experience in different genres and despite doing their own thing, every year they meet once.

This year they begun working on the classical piece, Asturias Leyenda. What did make this special, is that they were finely tuning this piece of work whilst writing their thesis’ for their final year at university. Pretty heavy times, as you can imagine. They eventually managed to finish this piece thanks to the support of their fellow students and friends Helen Schmidt and Oliver Sorg. And here are the fruits of their labour.

I don’t really think that I need to say much else, just have a listen again and I’ll see you next time kids.
