Classical Guitar Method, Op. 59 and Twenty-five Melodius and Progressive Studies for Guitar, Op. 60
Professional guitarist and teacher Philippe Bertaud has meticulously edited and revamped the classic Carcassi guitar method for use by today's guitar student. Bertaud's sensitive reworkings of the method retains the original intent, but also adds many modern conventions in the instruction of the classical guitar. As an added bonus, this book includes an MP3 CD containing recordings of all 25 studies of the Carcassi op. 60 beautifully performed by Bertaud. This combined edition of Matteo Carcassi's Classical Guitar Method, op. 59 and Twenty-five Melodious and Progressive Studies for the Guitar, op. 60, along with the enclosed CD make this new edition of the Caracassi method an indispensable addition to the library of any student or teacher of classical guitar.
This new edition is J.S. Bach's
arrangement of Antonio Vivaldi’s concerto op. 3 no. 8 from “L’Estro
Armonico”. Originally for two violins, arranged for Cello by F.W. Schneider. Includes piano reduction.
Grade 4. "Progression" has a constantly changing time signature, and much of the
music features contrary motion between the upper and lower voices. In a
modified sonata form, the two themes (one
driving and intense, the second lyric) get contrapuntal development and
a recapitulation at measure 82. Violin 1 goes to fifth position, Violin
2 and Viola to third, Cello and Bass to fourth. This contest-worthy
piece will be fun for your orchestra because of the rhythmic challenges
and active parts for all.
