This work is the fourth of a set of pieces composed after the opera 'Commedia'. These guitar pieces follow in the tradition of the old 'lazzi' from the seventeenth-century Commedia dell'Arte: they are show-pieces and are also an attempt to illustrate some of the characteristics of the players in the opera.

  • I Harlequin's Suicide lazzi 
  • II Columbine's Dance lazzi 
  • III Pantalone's Love-potion lazzi 
  • IV Contessa's Lamentation lazzi 
  • V Zanni's lazzi
