Españoletas by Gaspar Sanz

Españoletas by Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710). PDF sheet music or tab arranged for classical guitar. This comes from my sheet music edition Gaspar Sanz Guitar Collection which includes Villanos, Fuga, Españoletas, La Cavalleria de Nápoles con dos Clarines, Las Hachas, and Canarios. Includes both a notation-only edition and a tab edition. Level: Mid to Late Intermediate Grades 3-7.

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.

  1. Very nice piece… I’d like to have it but I don’t have a credit card to pay you. It is also played for wedding ceremony isn’t?.
