This lavishly produced volume is the ultimate collection of classical guitar music.
Carefully selected, meticulously edited and beautifully presented, these 50 pieces represent the greatest ever music composed for guitar. Starting with 16th Century music by composers such as Dowland, MilÃ¡n and NarvÃ¡ez, the book progresses through the major repertoire for the instrument by Sanz, J.S. Bach, Weiss and Sor and others, and then focuses on the great 19th and 20th Century masters - TÃ¡rrega, AlbÃ©niz, Granados, Barrios MangorÃ©, Llobet, Falla, Rodrigo, Turina. Amongst the masterpieces featured are Falla's 'Homanje'; Barrios MangorÃ©'s 'La Catedral'; Torroba's 'MadroÃ±os', and Narciso Yepes' timeless arrangement of the 'Romance' from the film Jeux Interdits. Other modern greats such as Lennox Berkeley, Walton, Brouwer and Williams are also included; all in all, an exceptional anthology of wonderful music. Many of the songs also feature specially commissioned text and photo sections, making this much more than a standard music book.
Individually numbered, luxuriously bound with a unique, faux-leather embroidered design and an exquisite presentation box, Legendary Classical Guitar Solos will be treasured for years to come as a book to play from, read and re-read.
