Books | Classical Guitar

Publisher: ABRSM Publishing
Composer: Domenico Scarlatti
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

After the Piano and Harpsichord, the Guitar is the instrument most associated with Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757). Many of his Keyboard works were influenced by the Guitar music of Spain, his adopted country.

This collection of arrangements for solo Guitar is an ideal introduction to Scarlatti's music. The ten varied pieces were carefully chosen for their musical character and technical suitability. Placed in order of difficulty, they reflect the range of skills required for Baroque repertoire, at intermediate and advanced levels.

  • Stylish and idiomatic adaptations, preserving the original ornamentations.
  • Core repertoire for Grades 6-8, with pieces on the ABRSM Guitar syllabus.
  • Carefully considered fingering, both clear and consistent.
  • Advice on ornaments, including full realizations.

        My son was delighted with this; even though the pieces are old they were printed in a modern font which made for easy sight-reading.
