Malaguena by Ernesto Lecuona
If it is printed by Hal Leonard, DO NOT TRUST ITS AUTHENTICITY...I know for a fact that this particular piano solo is NOT as the composer intended as I had a copy of the original and many of the stuff is wrong. I played my audition with it at an Ivy League Conservatory in the Northeast and believe me Hal Leonard publiscations are wrong for this and for many other composers.

This is an excellent piece for the advanced musician. Sheet music plus put this music in the mail the day following the order and I received the music in a couple of days. Excellent service and a good price.

Malaguena - piano solo original
For years I have taught the Malaguena as an advanced piano duet and loved it! The duetists can now enjoy the solo form as they graduate and move away. Your service (and price) were REALLY prompt! Thank you so much!

Great piece to learn
I recommend buying this music sheet and having this song in your repertoire. It is an excellent piece and I highly recommend it to any intermediate to advanced player.

Rapid acessibility to piano sheet music
Malaguena by Lecuona is a famous piece for piano, a beautiful combination between original rhitms and melodicity. The sheet music bought from Sheet Music Plus was perfect for any piano player. Thank you very much for this possibility to obtain in a very short time a music sheet difficult or impossible to be obtained by using other sources. Mihail Ionescu

This piece is complicated enough to be showy, yet easy enough to learn with enough practice. The chords aren't extremely difficult, making the piece easy enough to learn.

Very good piece
I just completed Malaguena for my recital. It is an exceptional piece for the intermediate/advanced player.It took me a while to master, including memorization (5 months) but it is worth it. Involves some technical ability to master it well. Just play it with passion! It impresses everyone :) Great arrangement, although a little blurred, but good all the same. Enjoy!

Very good piece!! It takes awhile to get it down perfect but its worth it. Don't give up if you can't pull it off flawless the first time. Good print quality. Fully legible. I would suggest this piece for late intermediate/advanced players. I have been playing for years so I picked it up rather quickly. Above all. HAVE FUN MAKING MUSIC!!!!!!

I had my father's worn out and torn copy of Malaguena and was very excited to find the exact same arrangement available from your web site. I ordered it immediately and within a few days I had it.

Fast delivery. It's more of an intermediate to advanced piece. My copy was fully legible...no blurring.

Quite a challenge, but worthwhile!
This is one of my favorite songs in the entire world. This is a very good version, although the music is a little blurred. Definitely for a more intermediate/advanced player, but very doable. There are a few tricky parts, but once you learn it, you will want to play it again and again!!

Awesome song, great music
I absolutely love this song. I think there might be one or two mistakes in the music. It's not a hard arrangement if you are used to playing very advanced pieces. This is definitely an intermediate/advanced piece. I love the arrangement!

this is a beautiful arrangement, although it is more on the advanced side. it's a little hard to read, and i wouldn't teach it to anyone who has had less than four years of experience.

Great Music, But Poor Print Quality
This is great music. But this arrangement is more on the advanced side than intermediate. Also, it looks like it was printed in the 1930's and the print quality is not very clear (splotchy notes). I am going to search for a better copy.
