Cançó del lladre, “Thief’s song,” arr. Miguel Llobet (1878-1938)

From one of Llobet’s best known works, Diez Canciones Populares Catalanas (Ten Catalonian Folk Songs), published by Union Musicale Española in 1964. Recorded in the early morning light (alas, the lens glare in the lower left) before heading off to work today.

The photo shows Llobet and his daughter, María Luisa Anido. She became an accomplished guitarist and composer and once stated, “Composing is a wonderful task because of the sincerity it carries within, because of the act of creation itself… because it reveals the greatest depths of the human soul.”
