I first noticed this piece when robk asked here, viewtopic.php?f=101&t=109908
, whether anyone could arrange it for the guitar. This led to mrvegas posting a very nice arrangement in E minor here: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=110122&p=1171600#p1171600
, which Isabelle Frizac plays beautifully here: viewtopic.php?f=48&t=110210#p1172497
In arranging harpsichord pieces for the guitar there are usually decisions to be made about simplifying the inner voices and resolving the greater octave range usually found; mrvegas made a particular set of choices and I wondered whether a viable arrangement could made with different choices. The arrangement here is the result; it's trickier than the earlier arrangement but I'd be interested to know if it works!
By the way the harpsichord piece can also be found in a version by the English musician Giles Farnaby with a longer and more complex set of variations (there are in fact three Camphuysen versions that could be put together to make one piece that would then be similar in complexity).
Farnaby also arranged another (not entirely dissimilar) piece called Tell me Daphne
(aka Daphne & Corridon) and I have posted an arrangement of a lute version of this piece by John Whitfield here: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=113658
