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, Milán and Narváez, 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 – Tárrega, Albéniz, Granados, Barrios Mangoré, Llobet, Falla, Rodrigo, Turina. Amongst the masterpieces featured are Falla's 'Homanje'; Barrios Mangoré's 'La Catedral'; Torroba's 'Madroños', 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.

  • 2011-06-03 00:00:00.0 Too good to be true

    This book is HEAVY!!! It does give you that luxuarious, substance and importance feeling about this book. That is the exterior. The inside, the contents, I have to say that I am quite impressed. The book tries to cover the obvious period in history with composers of the same period...

    . So, it offers very very good bases for anyone to do more research on any particular period. The presentation, the format are equally impressive, clean, clear. The only negative I can say about it is that it does look a little dated instead of "timeless". But a book like this should remain timeless.
