In the 19th century, the term was confused with the appoggiatura. The performer should have some flexibility as to how to play the ornament.

Nevertheless, I opted for unambiguous clarity over interpretive freedom. The first hairpin appears redundant to the un poco crescendo instruction. Therefore, you may choose to play the piece faster than the 60 bpm I’ve listed, opting for a faster 80—90 in the Andante range. The second mistake I had heard was tarregz the portamentos—which are notated in the original as an unslurred slide to a grace note—by striking the end note twice instead of once.

I LOVE the forum, too. That is, except for measure 14, where the Antich y Tena and Anido editions show the forte between the hairpins, but on the bottom of the staff adleita the hairpins are above the staff. It’s easier for inexperienced players to grasp this when there’s one acciaccatura note, but it becomes fuzzy for them when there are two notes involved which can be confused for two sixteenth notes.

Mozart, Beethoven, and other great composers expected their Da Capos to respect the playing of repeats unless accompanied by an additional instruction to not do so see Beethoven’s Century: Both the Antich y Tena and Anido editions clearly use D. Composers as varied as Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin, and Schubert used hairpins as agogic and voicing instructions instead of as dynamic intensity indicators, for which the written instructions crescendo and decrescendo as well as abbreviated dynamic markings were used instead for more information see The Secret Life of Musical NotationRoberto Poli, Modern editions write D.


Therefore, I assume—perhaps incorrectly—the repeats were not meant to be observed. His music is very classical in nature because there is usually a clear melody supported by a bass line that creates traditional classical harmony, chord progression and voice leading. After much thought, I decided that the accents on the notes after the acciaccaturas were too confusing for players without much notational experience.

The overall form of ‘Adelita’ is also typical of his small scale solo guitar pieces. At the very least, it gives an indication of the duration of the crescendo, even though that could have been accomplished with a dotted line.

Although I have preserved the original D. Despite that possibility, I included them assuming they represented changes in dynamic intensity and added explicit intensity levels that were missing at the ends of the hairpins.

The first was to play the acciaccatura notes before the second voice bass note and accenting the note that showed the accent instead of accenting the beat.

In the end, I abandoned my changes and decided to eliminate all acciaccaturas and trailing grace notes. Open In New Window. In this lesson I discuss aspects of Tarrega’s compositional style. As a side note, I believe notated guide finger lines to be superfluous; it suffices to see that two consecutive notes use the same finger number. His music always shows complete command of the instrument.

Adelita (Tárrega, Francisco)

Still, today the classical guitar world cannot bring itself to use the term slide and much confusion abounds regarding the difference between glissandosportamentosand finger shifts. Although he did not invent the metronome, he manufactured and sold what became the most popular model. It is not clear, however, that it qualifies as a mazurka.


At first, the primary change I made was to extend the slurs from the acciaccaturas [ 2 ] to the note following the acciaccatura forming a so-called reverse or inverted mordent.

In contemporary guitar notation—at least in the non-classical world—there should be no need for adeliha trailing grace note when the grace note’s pitch is the same as that of the following note. After much debate, I decided to make significant notational changes that do not taerega the meaning of the music, but make it easier for the contemporary player to understand.

This is more than just a theory; it aelita quite clear when you read the music as originally notated and compare it to later editions which mistakenly edit the original notation. A change I made that could impact musical interpretation is the addition of explicit dynamic levels to the hairpins. Both notations produce the same sounding music, but mine should be easier to interpret correctly.

That said, before the widespread use of metronome marks, [ 1 ] the intended beats per minute of a particular tempo indicator was ambiguous at best. That may account for why most recordings are played at an Andante or faster.

A guide finger indication is denoted by a line connecting the two identical fingering numbers of two consecutive notes and does not produce an audible slide effect. One section is in a minor key, sounds very bittersweet and sadly dramatic.

I prefer the acciaccatura notation because no one can or should play a 64th note exactly.
