Classic Guitar, standard notation only (no tablature, not any accompaniment, lyrics nor chords diagrams) normal Guitar tuning, and this title is not including a CD recording.
The published contents of the greatest Croatian XIX century Guitar composer and performer, Ivan Padovec's, complete biography, collection of all known photos, and unpublished solo pieces without opus numbers.
They range from his more-easy, short didactic compositions, done for his numerous Guitar students, to a number of miniatures, dances and themes, with variations of a medium technical difficulty, and finally a few pieces for more advanced players.
The entire collection is based on the music, which for more than 120 years was totally unknown outside of Padovec's country, Croatia (former Yugoslavian republic), and mostly lost or forgotten and never published.
This book presents biographical notes, as well as Padovec's portraits and other illustrations, with all pieces found in his own manuscript or handwriting of his closest pupils and friends. They are the result of more than 25 years of Mr. Dojcinovic's research. This is the first collection of Ivan Padovec's music ever to be published.
