The Romance Anonimo (Anonymous Romance) is a simple, familiar and well-loved work that is, in one version or another, in the repertoire of virtually every classical Guitarist. As with many seemingly simple works, a good level of technical ability and musicianship is required to create a performance worthy of the music.The piece is known by many names, Spanish Romance, Romance de Espana, Romance of the Guitar, and Study in E by Rubira. Similarly, the authorship is unsettled, though Miguel Llobet is one of the names to which the piece is credited. The earliest known recording was a wax cylinder made sometime around 1900. Whoever wrote Romance Anonimo, it is a lovely piece, beloved of audiences and Guitarists alike.
