Selected Concert Works (Selected Concert Works for the Russian 7-String Guitar in G open tuning). By Various. Edited by Matanya Ophee. For solo guitar. Published by Editions Orphee (PR.494028240).
Volume Ten, like the previous books in the Russian Collection series, is intended to serve as a general introduction to Russian seven-string guitar music, including concert repertoire, transcriptions, themes and variations, fantasias, and more. Suitable for players using standard guitars as well, this volume includes the original seven-string versions as well as a few works printed here for the first time in the West. (The six-string guitar is tuned in fourths, while the Russian seven-string guitar is tuned in thirds). Most six-string guitar players acclimate quickly to playing in this tuning and are able to read the music without the aid of tablature. However, for newcomers, this edition is equipped with a generous layer of fingering.
