Chopin for Acoustic Guitar

Publisher: Mel Bay Publications
ISBN: 9781619116979
Release Date: 2015-08-18
Genre: Music

Frederic Chopin was one of the most original and influential composers in history. Although he only lived 39 years, he wrote music that has thoroughly embedded itself in our culture. His melodies are often instantly familiar to us and show a profound lyric sense. Many qualities of Chopin's music are ideal for guitar transcription. He wrote pieces that are short with a manageable range. The textures are mostly single melody lines with harmonic accompaniment without the complex counterpoint that can be so difficult on the guitar. His music is often soft, intimate, subtle, and full of naunces of articulation, dynamics, and phrasing. These qualities transfer quite naturally to the guitar. While remaining asfaithful as possible to the composer's musical intentions, these pieces experienced some modification that is noted in the provided performance notes. Intermediatein difficulty, this book assumes the player has basic knowledge of the guitar and familiarity with either standard music notation or guitar tablature. Selections include: Prelude Op. 28, No. 7; Prelude Op. 28, No. 20; Prelude Op. 28, No. 4; Cantabile; Mazurka Op. 6, No. 2; Prelude Op. 28, No , 15; Nocturne Op. 9, No. 2;Nocturne Op. 15, No. 3; Nocturne Op. 37, No 1; and Nocturne Op. 55, No. 1. All of these beautiful pieces are included on the downloadable online audio.

Edvard Grieg 16 Lyric Pieces

Genre: Music

The classical guitar is at its best with music of smaller proportions that is personal, evocative, and imbued with opportunities for subtle, expressive nuances in performance. Like the piano it must stitch together discrete and fading notes into continuous melodies supported by a harmonic background. the joining of Grieg's music and the classical guitar seems to be a most obvious and fruitful endeavor. This collection presents transcriptions from Grieg's best known and loved piano works. They are of intermediate to early advanced difficulty, with detailed fingering indications and extensive notes about the transcriptions and performance suggestions for each piece. This wonderful music, so easily and elegantly translated to the guitar, has previously been overlooked by most guitarists. These arrangements show that the results of the combination is better than might be expected. Standard notation only.

"Treasures of a Lost Art presents 144 leaves, cuttings, and illuminated manuscript fragments from the collection of Robert Lehman (1891-1969), one of the largest and most impressive private holdings of Italian manuscripts assembled after the First World War. Discussed here - with many of them handsomely illustrated in full color - are important examples of the major schools of illumination in southern Italy, Umbria, Tuscany, Emilia, Lombardy, and the Veneto. Previously unpublished, and perhaps even unknown to scholars, are works by some of the foremost Italian painters of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, including a leaf here attributed for the first time to the Sienese master Duccio di Buoninsegna and cuttings by Stefano da Verona and Cosimo Tura. Lesser-known arists, such as Neri da Rimini, Belbello da Pavia, and Girolamo da Cremona, once renowned for their beautifully illuminated volumes, are also discussed in full."--Jacket.
