In Requiebros there is a repeated dotted rhythm about which, according to Manual Cervera, Cassado was particularly concerned. He didn't want a marching rhythm here. The semiquaver must be emphasised and fully played out. In all three of Cassado's recordings these rhythms are played emphasising the semiquaver; there is a clear accent and even a relaxation of tempo in these bars. On the contrary, Casals' version of this rhythm is more march-like, with a harsher accent and there is a clear tendency to overdot all the rhythms in this section, with the tempo moving forward rather than broadening through emphasis. Claret in his recordings stays somewhere in between, but also slightly overdots the dotted rhythms. Cassado's indication in the score is con suono energico, so it is easy to understand why many performers would play the section pressing forward.
