Is anyone aware of another transcription of "Pathetique" for CG other than Tarrega's? I have been re-working many of his voicings/fingerings and thought, perhaps, there is a different arrangement available. Thanks. Playing again(and writing) . . . Rognvald
There are probably many others, but there are excellent arrangements of this piece in the following anthologies:
1. Bella: The Incomparable Artistry Of Angel Romero, published by Hal Leonard
2. The Classical Guitar Compendium: Classical Masterpieces Arranged for Solo Guitar, by Bridget Mermikides, published by Hal Leonard
3. Meet Liona Boyd at the Classical Guitar, published by Alfred Music
All three of these anthologies also include other fine arrangements.
The Bella book has Angel's arrangements of all tunes that appear on his Bella CD, which is my all-time favorite:-)
The Classical Guitar Compendium includes technical studies by Sor, Tarrega, Giuliani, Carcassi, and Aguado, along with arrangements of music by Bach (Air on a G String; Joy of Man's Desiring; Prelude from Cello Suite No. 1), Beethovan (Adagio from Pathetique Sonata; Fur Elise; Moonlight Sonata), Brahms (Lullaby), Chopin (Nocturne Opus 9 No. 2; Prelude Opus 28 No. 4; Prelude Opus 28 No. 20), Debussy (Clair de Lune; La Fille aux Cheveux de Lin), Dilibes (Flower Duet from Lakme), Faure (Pavane), Grieg (Hall of the Mountain King; Morning Mood from Peer Gynt), Massenet (Meditation from Thias), Mozart (Clarinet Concerto 2nd Mvt; Piano Concerto No. 21 Andante; Rondo alla Tarca), Pachelbel (Canon), Puccini (Nessum Dorma), Ravel (Bolero), Satie (Bnossienne No. 1; Symnopedie No. 1; Gymnopedia No. 3), Schupert (Traumerei), Tchaikovsky (Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy), Verdi (La Forza del Destino), and Wagner (Ride of the Valkeries), all for under $20 with access to download her performances of the pieces!
Linoa's book has many fine pieces as well, including her arrangement of Malaguena (this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3FlG2uJgY8
), a nice solo guitar arrangement of a popular movement from one of Vivaldi's concertos, etc. This volume is out of print, but you can still find it used online.
