Anton Baranov discusses the use of different types of barres and demonstrates them in the context of Federico Moreno Torroba’s “Alba de Tormes” from the suite Castillos de España.
The lesson begins with several famous excerpts from the repertoire that use unconventional barres including Manuel Ponce’s Concierto del Sur, Mauro Giuliani’s Grand Overture, and Emilio Pujol’s El Abejorro. Baranov then performs and walks through the brief Torroba piece to showcase the mixing of different types and how one can use this piece to practice them.
