Serenata Espanol is a stylized piece of Spanish with a pretty French dressing. The piece starts with a slow introduction of the chord material and proceeds with a joyful dance-like theme. After a middle section with some playing around, the theme returns and dissolves in a coda with some brisk chords to finish the piece
It’s not the simplest piece to play, you will have to study and practice to finish the theme and middle section in the correct tempo. Mind the positions, a well-chosen position provides a nice sound. As with many pieces from this period, the ornaments require attention, but no emphasis. Final result is a rewarding piece that will do well on stage.
