Baroque Guitar


Folías de España Here is my arrangement of the legendary Folía theme. With a rather ambitious number variations I have assembled a single Opus from nearly all of the extant Baroque guitar versions including: Le Cocq, Murcia, Corbetta, Guerau – with touches of my own. The Folía theme is one of the oldest well remembered melodies in European music and has been used by innumerable composers over the centuries. In this video I have had the great pleasure of performing on an outstanding instrument on loan to from the great Norwegian Luthier Lars Torressen. I have recently been encouraged to start offering lessons via Skype, especially for advanced classical guitar students or classical guitarists who want to segue to historical or ethnic instruments (lute, vihuela, baroque guitar, oud, etc)
