Narciso Yepes

Yepes was well-known for (among other things) his use of a ten-string guitar: the six sleek strings we all know and love, plus low-pitched resonator strings tuned to F#, G#, A#, and C. Their primary function, as heard in this recording, was to allow the guitar a fully chromatic sympathetic resonance.

Gigue from Suite in D minor, Robert de Visée

Robert de Visée was a court musician for Louis XIV. This suite originally appeared in 1686.

Originally for the kind of guitar we now call a ‘baroque guitar’. Usually when this suite is performed on a modern guitar, like I have done here, Karl Scheit’s version is used uncritically. I’ve gone back to the original tablature, which is swirly and goofy-looking but rather easy to read, and found some of the original charm that Universal Edition always likes to leave out.

Hopefully I’ll record the rest of the suite soon. I’ve also adapted the Passacaille from this suite, which Scheit leaves out entirely, due to its “scanty musical content”. Dumbass!
