Easy(ish) baroque pieces

Postby powis55 » Wed Apr 19, 2017 8:58 am

Hi all,

I have been studying a few easy(ish) pieces by Logy, and would like to ask members if they can recommend other baroque pieces that fall somewhere around late beginner-early intermediate that I could play after a reasonable amount of practice.

I recently uploaded a few baroque pieces that I think may fall into that category. Not being a teacher I could be wrong, but you can check some of them out. Here is a video of the (IMO) easiest pieces

You could try looking in the Guitar Moments collections of arrangements by Eythor Tholaksson here:

I've found these a good resource of very pleasant sounding pieces including some baroque stuff.

Have you had a look at the Delcamp volumes D03..D05, where you can find many baroque gems
(Sanz, Brescianello, de Visée, Bach)?
In the forum section "Our scores" you can find baroque pieces, too.
Noad's book "The Baroque Guitar" contains several easier pieces and a good introduction to baroque music style.
If you are looking for more or something specific, feel free to send me a PM.

Hello powis55,

There are littirally hundreds, if not thousands, of pieces that match your request, but one good starting point is the very nice "baroque guitar anthology" by Jens Franke and Stuart Willis, published by Schott. Four volumes of exquisite pieces, carefully sorted by order of difficulty. The first three volumes span the beginner-intermediate level, and the third volume ends with a complete and very accurate transcription of the sonata "l'infidèle" by Silvius-Leopold Weiss. Last but not least, each volume comes with a very good audio CD that is not only useful but also very pleasant to listen to.
Hope this helps,
regards,

Gilles

Yes, these are very nice volumes, and Franke either does or will be offering master-class lessons via Skype.
