l The most popular piece of music in Spain, the land of chivalry, magic and passion. Yet far from being ribald, and rowdy, it is elegant, and elevating. It's composer is anonymous, its source unknown, and its name, previously lacking, now borrowed from the 1952 French film "Jeux Interdits" that used it as the theme song. The player, grand master Narciso Yepes, reportedly composed the guitar music at age 9. But he himself denied it. Another theory was that Fernando Sor composed it in the early 19th century, which later was overhtrown. It origin has remained a mystery to this day. Yepes' playing, with sensitive handling of each sentence, is superb, and worthy of repeated listening and savoring.
