Españoletas by Gaspar Sanz (PDF)

Españoletas by Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710). This is a sheet music reference video for my new PDF eBook. I’ll be making videos for each one as promo material and of possible help to students. You can follow the link below to learn more.

Gaspar Sanz Collection 
Arranged & Edited by Bradford Werner
PDF includes two editions. Notation Only followed by Notation + Modern Tablature.

These popular works by Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710) originate from his Instrucción de música sobre la Guitarra Española for Baroque guitar. In 1954 Joaquín Rodrigo composed his guitar concerto Fantasía para un gentilhombre on themes from these works. A degree of arranging for modern guitar has taken place, including adding the sixth string of the modern guitar to complete logical musical lines. Besides that I have tried to keep to the original as often as possible.
