Abel Carlevaro's Library Online

Post by Henrique Rievers » Sun Apr 14, 2019 10:55 am

Alfredo Escante did an amazing work making Carlevaro's notes available online: https://bibliotecaabelcarlevaro.blogspot.com/
Certainly worth it to study it.

Thank you for posting this link. It is very interesting and insightful to see Carlevaro's personal annotations on some of the pieces that I know. Certainly worth studying.

This is a significant collection now available. Well worth some study by anyone interested in Carlevaro, or in the Carlevaro-Segovia connection. There are some real jewels to be found in here!

Thank you for sharing that link.

I just started learning (or trying to...) the first movement from Jose's Sonata--many of his fingering and note changes make it almost playable!

I think it's broader than that. I have been looking through the pieces today and I have to say that, as an amateur arranger, I find it fascinating to look at how Carlevaro rewrote and refingered other people's arrangements. And compositions - it looks as if he has partially rewritten Poulenc's Sarabande :shock:

I shall certainly download and make use of some of these pieces - many thanks to Alfredo Escante :)

Well, he even changed some bass notes on Carcassi studies, so clearly he thought everything was fair game in terms of re-arranging.

Thanks for the link. Carlevaro's fingering is well worth studying.

Fantastic - several original Villa Lobos manuscripts in there.
