The Renaissance Vihuela & Guitar in Sixtenth-Century Spain (Music transcribed and adapted for modern guitar). By Frank Koonce. For Guitar (Classical). Wire bound, Solos. Frank Koonce Series. Early Music/Renaissance. Intermediate. Book. 192 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.21590).

ISBN 9780786678228. Early Music/Renaissance. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

Scholarly editions, which serve different purposes than performance editions, are not often designed with the modern guitarist in mind. For instance, Renaissance vihuela tablatures are usually transcribed with the open first string as G, not E. Most are presented in double-staff notation, a medium that is superior for realizing counterpoint but unconventional as guitar notation. Furthermore, these editions sometimes give idealized, but not realistic, solutions for voicing, note duration, and other matters that need to be considered within the limitations of our instrument. Guitarists who try to play from these editions essentially are faced with the task of transcribing the transcription!

This 188-page anthology is designed as a companion volume to The Baroque Guitar in Spain and the New World (MB21122). It includes representative selections, edited for modern guitar, from the seven books for vihuela that were published in Spain between 1536 and 1576.As well as being fun and entertaining music for all to enjoy, these collections are intended to help bridge the gap between scholarly editions and performance editions by providing a hands-on introduction to tablature transcription and to issues concerning historically informed performance of early music on the guitar.

  • January 19, 2013 Very good

    If you are not used to play with the 3rd string tuned down to F#, you should probably start with an easier book. If you ar yoused to it, this is an excellent collection of some of the most beautiful music for our instrument. And the introduction is also very...

    good. The only thing that (for me, anyways) is a bit irritating, are the slur markings in some of the transcriptions, making the scores more complicated than necessary to read from sight.

  • January 03, 2011 Excellent resource for guitarists

    This is an excellent edition that should belong to any guitarist looking to expand their Renaissance repertoire. Koonce does his usual job of superior editing and scholarship for each piece.
