This week’s free download is Frank Halász’s performance of Lágrima, a romantic prelude for solo guitar by the 19th-century Spanish composer Francisco Tárrega. It is one of the best known compositions by the composer and appears on Halász’s new album Spain, released on the BIS label. The album was recently awarded a four-star review in BBC Music Magazine.


‘Halász’s playing is deeply expressive, finding a huge variety of tones,’ writes BBC Music Magazine critic Sarah Urwin Jones.
