Giga by David Kellner & Lesson

Bradford Werner (me) plays Giga by David Kellner (1670-1748) arranged for classical guitar (originally for lute). You can also watch this larger on my Youtube channel. David Kellner (1670–1748) was a German composer of the baroque period and a contemporary of Bach. He wrote a sizeable amount of compositions for the lute but also theory of music and equal temperament. His diagram of the circle of fifths is the earliest extant examples. I find these works very satisfying and filled with charm. Like Weiss, there is always a melodic line flowing through the works and rarely any super thick counterpoint, perfect for guitar.
