Toast and Malagueña

Ernesto Lecuona




Malagueña was written in 1928 by Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona as the 6th movement of his Suite Andulucia. Although it was written for piano it became a guitar standard after it was arranged for that instrument by Carlos Montoya in 1961.



One day I was working on this wonderful melody at the same time my wife was using the toaster. The marvel of French design that is my toaster includes a slightly obnoxious timer that doubles as a serviceable metronome. 

Here is my duet with toaster, Toast and Malaguena:
