Bradford Werner Plays Sarabande for Guitar by Francis Poulenc

Bradford Werner plays Sarabande for Guitar, To Ida Presti, (FP179) by Francis Poulenc (1899-1963). Composed in 1960. I love this piece for it’s motivic repetition and overall calm feel.

Sheet Music: I’m using this Recordi edition via SMP but changed many of the fingerings: Sarabande by Poulenc

  1. Hi Bradford. Thanks for a lovely, sensitive and expressive rendition. I think you’ve captured the mood of this piece perfectly. I see that the fingering indications in the sheet music show the same chords in different positions. I’m looking forward to watching your video a few times to try and work out where you’ve changed the fingering! Best wishes, Tom
