Easy Baroque Pieces for Classical Guitar is an outstanding introduction for the beginner to intermediate guitarist to the music of the Baroque. The Baroque period of music flourished in Europe from 1600 to 1750, and is represented by a singleness of mood and gesture, rhythmic continuity, polyphonic texture, and melodic ornamentation. Jerry Willard explains the intricacies of Baroque ornamentation (including trills, mordents, and notes inégale) in an easy-to-understand way, and performs each piece on the accompanying audio CD. Includes: Aria (from the Anna Magdelena Notebook)(J.S. Bach) • Bourrée in A Minor (theme, from the Second Violin Partita) (J.S. Bach) • Largo (Arcangelo Corelli) • The Harmonious Blacksmith (George Frideric Handel) • Canon (Johann Pachelbel) • Minuet (Henry Purcell) • Gavotte (Giovanni Zamboni) • and more.

    I purchased this book because it is difficult for intermediate amateur players to find repertoire that is approachable yet musically interesting, standing up to repeat playing. It hit the mark very well. Most pieces can be mastered by an intermediate level player without a huge investment in time; notation is...

    clear, and it's a nice collection of pieces. Accompanying CD is very helpful; the author has some nice subtle phrasings. My only beef is that some of the pieces are provided in "Cliff Notes" versions instead of the whole piece. Bottom line: I love Baroque music, it sits well on classical guitar, and this book stays out on my music stand all the time!
