    Classical Guitar Discography

    Sanz Complete Music for Guitar, Alberto Mesirca

    L'etichetta discografica Brilliant Classics pubblica il nuovo CD del chitarrista italiano @Alberto Mesirca dedicato alla musica per chitarra sola di Gaspar Sanz (1640 - 1710).
    La tracklist include i seguenti lavori:

    Dal sito dell'editore:
    Composer, theorist and guitarist Gaspar Sanz was born in Calanda in Aragón in 1640, and in 1674, in Zaragoza, he published the first edition of his Instrucción de música sobre la guitarra española (Musical Instruction for the Spanish Guitar), containing numerous compositions. Sanz’s music reveals him to have been a key figure in bridging two different musical traditions – the Spanish and the Italian. We know from his own testimony that music from outside Spain was being performed in Zaragoza in his lifetime, and the cultural influence of Austria, with its leanings for the Italian style, would also have been felt in the city at that time. 
    His book, at once a collection of music and a method, was addressed to both aficionados and beginners, as well as professional musicians. It contains practical and innovative advice on harmony, counterpoint and continuo practice for accompanying soloists and dancers, his vast musical knowledge and creativity demonstrated in numerous original compositions and national and foreign songs. While the origins of the latter lie in the folk tradition, by the time Sanz published the Instrucción de música, these had already long been part of the art music from which Sanz drew his inspiration. Having travelled the continent extensively, much of his musical education took place in Italy, and he would have encountered these songs and dances there in instrumental versions. 
    Italian classical guitarist Alberto Mesirca was hailed as ‘prodigiously talented’ in Classical Guitar Magazine, and Kenneth Keaton of American Record Guide praised his album Scarlatti Sonatas as ‘the best Scarlatti I’ve heard on solo guitar’. He is a two-time winner of the “Golden Guitar” Award: for Best Recording in 2007 and as Best Upcoming Artist of the Year in 2009. 
    With this two-CD set, he has recorded all of Sanz’s punteado (plucked) music for guitar, together with the corresponding rasgueado (strummed) parts or dances. He includes his own arrangements of the dances ‘La tarantela’ and ‘Baile de Mantua’, which Sanz published in strummed versions only. 
    Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710) was born in Calanda, Aragón in Spain. As a young student he went to Italy to learn his craft and art, and studied with the masters in Rome and Naples. His most important publication was published in 1674: “Instrucción de música sobre la guitarra española” (Musical instruction for the Spanish Guitar). 
    This publication contains theoretical information, instructions on technical aspects of the instrument and its way of playing, and a great number of compositions. The publication had far reaching influence on generations of guitar players to come. This new recording presents the compositions from the manuscript, a wide variety of fugues and mainly dances: the Passacalle, Coriente, Zarabanda, Jiga and other popular dances, with roots in the rich folk music of both Spain and Italy. 
    Master guitarist Alberto Mesirca is twice winner of the Golden Guitar, for the best recording of the Year. He recorded the complete guitar music by Regondi and “Voces de Sefarad” , four centuries of Sephardic Songs. 

    A Spanish Portrait, Luigi Attademo

    La major discografica olandese Brilliant Classics pubblica il nuovo CD del chitarrista italiano @Luigi Attademo.
    Il CD si intitola A Spanish Protrait e contiene le seguenti composizioni:

    Dal sito dell'editore:
    A musical portrait of a master guitar-maker of the 19th century. 
    Great instruments have always been associated with great musicians, and this is true in the guitar world too, at least from the early 19th century onwards. Early in his career, Antonio de Torres (1817-1892), like other luthiers before him, found a performer ideally suited to his instruments – the young Andalusian guitarist Julián Arcas. The technical innovations in construction and timbre pioneered by Torres enabled Arcas to give full expression to his artistry in works such as the florid Fantasía sobre El paño o sea Punto de La Habana with which Luigi Attademo opens this new studio album. 
    Of the generation after Arca, Francisco Tárrega quickly proved himself even more gifted in both performancecomposition. So much so that Torres offered him a guitar he had made five years earlier and kept for his own use. This was the FE 17, which Tárrega continued to play for the next 20 years, and which came to define the sound of ‘the Spanish guitar’ to generations of listeners. 
    A groundbreaking instrument in terms of its tonal range and sound potential, the FE 17 became critical to both Tárrega’s success and to the expansion of guitar repertoire during the 19th century: although he continued to compose using the traditional forms of the fantasia and theme and variations, Tárrega also focused on shorter forms borrowed directly from Romantic piano repertoire. With eight original works by Tárrega, Attademo demonstrates the full tonal-dynamic palette of Torres’s instruments. Further selections of popular repertoire by Llobet, alongside his transcriptions of Granados and Albeniz, take the guitar’s evolution through a more advanced stage, exploring different registers, radical harmonies and tone-colours. 
    This bold new concept album should attract the attention of all lovers of Spanish guitar. Luigi Attademo has recorded it using an original Torres SE 122 guitar which has been strung with gut rather than steel to further enhance the potential for experiencing this music in the thrill of its original creation. 
    This recording features an historic guitar, an instrument built in 1888 by the great, legendary guitar maker Antonio de Torres. Many composers were inspired by his magnificent instruments, and he was inspired by the composers who spurred him to extend the technical possibilities of the instrument. 
    The composers included in this appealing program are all Spanish: Julian Arcas, Antonio Cano, Francisco Tarrega, Enrique Granados, Antonio Jimemez Manjon, Isaac Albeniz, and Miguel Llobet. 
    The Torres guitar needs a master to be played on: Luigi Attademo is one of today’s foremost guitarists, with an extensive discography to his name: for Brilliant Classics he recorded works by Paganini, Scarlatti, Bach and a CD devoted to historical guitars.

    The Italian Recital - Daniel Valentin Marx

    Genuin Classics pubblica il CD dedicato al repertorio per chitarra di autori italiani del chitarrista Daniel Valentin Marx
    Daniel Marx is one of the shooting stars of the guitar scene. With his CD "The Italian Recital" he not only makes an impressive debut but also demonstrates his love of Italian music. In the land of opera, singing is unthinkable—and Daniel Marx proves that the guitar can sing! He crosses the centuries, technically and interpretatively at the highest niveau, from the Renaissance to the Romantic period. Molinari's fantasies are just as transparent and sonorous as Regondi's dreams or Scarlatti's sonatas—a real discovery!

    • Le Edizioni UtOrpheus pubblicano i 24 Preludi e Ricercari per Chitarra di Alfredo Franco; revisione a cura di Leonardo de Marchi.

      I 24 Preludi e Ricercari sono un’opera con finalità didattiche in cui il compositore Alfredo Franco (1967) sintetizza la sua predilezione per alcune forme musicali ormai canonizzate dalla tradizione musicale. Difficile non scorgere in filigrana un omaggio a uno dei più significativi cicli pedagogici per chitarra del XX secolo, vale a dire i 24 Preludi che il compositore messicano Manuel Maria Ponce (1882-1948) scrisse su stimolo del celeberrimo Andrés Segovia. Analogamente a Ponce, Franco struttura una raccolta che va a coprire tutte le 24 tonalità del sistema temperato equabile; ad ogni Preludio segue un Ricercare, forma contrappuntistica di tipo imitativo ben rappresentata nella letteratura rinascimentale per liuto, che esplora le possibilità polifoniche dello strumento nella tonalità d’impianto del corrispondente Preludio.
