Masterpieces for Fingerstyle Guitar is
a rare compilation of carefully selected masterworks from the Baroque,
Classical, and Romantic periods arranged for Classical Guitar. While there are
many collections which feature lesser-known works for Classical Guitar, we
believe none comes close to our complete collection of these most well-known
and beloved works created by the greatest composers that ever lived. These
great works of the masters from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries
have stood the test of time as they continue to be revered to this day.
Classical Masterpieces for Fingerstyle Guitar eliminates the need for
multiple teaching resources and musical supplements, since many of the
greatest pieces ever written are now contained in this one outstanding
Written in standard notation and tablature, each piece has been
carefully transcribed and specifically arranged in a classic style
perfectly suited for guitar. Extreme care was given in the choice of key
signatures and fingering demands of the left-hand, with a careful focus on
understanding octave ranges, and placement of page turns to make every
arrangement extremely playable.
The recording that
accompanies this book is performed by one of the greatest classical
guitarists working in the Miami area today. We are confident that you will
be impressed by the performance, but even more so by the exceptional work
of the arrangers and editors involved in making this recital collection.
