Corbetta, Guitarra española

Line-cut facsimile of a recently rediscovered manuscript of Corbetta’s Varii scherzi di sonate (Brussels, 1648). This unusual “hispanified” copy came to light in 1991. Besides the music from the original edition it includes 3 other pieces by Corbetta (preludium in G minor, brando in Bb major & almanda in Bb major), an untitled piece, 2 additional variations for his own set of folia variations, and 3 unattributed Spanish” pieces. Commentary in Ger-Eng. A careful and elegantly edited facsimile. Wrappers.
