Francisco Tárrega: Marieta (Mazurka for guitar)

Who is Marieta?

Francisco Tárrega composed many pieces that were musical portraits of his sons/daughters or close friends and often dedicated many of such works to his friends/pupils or patrons.

Marieta is the nickname that the Tárrega family used for their daughter María Rosalía (born on 13 September 1885 in Barcelona). The piece was dedicated to his dear friend Santiago Gisbert.
