Rolf van Meurs - GuitarRolf van Meurs performs Cavatini Op.7 “Lanquir per una bella” from the Opera L’italiana in Algeri by Rossini (1792-1968). Arranged for guitar solo by Luigi Legnani (1790-1877). Played on an 8-string ‘Legnani model’ made by Bernhard Kresse. This comes via Gitaarsalon (Netherlands) and their YouTube. You can follow along with the free facsimile sheet music: Cavatini Op.7 by Legnani (PDF). These period opera transcriptions must have the ‘Youtube cover songs’ of the 19th century, guitarist’s ripping up the new popular aria. Nothing’s changed right?
