Edvard Grieg 16 Lyric Pieces Transcribed For solo Guitar 9780786664733
The classical guitar is at its best with music of smaller proportions that is personal, evocative, and imbued with opportunities for subtle, expressive nuances in performance. Like the piano it must stitch together discrete and fading notes into continuous melodies supported by a harmonic background. The joining of Grieg's music and the classical guitar seems to be a most obvious and fruitful endeavor. This collection presents transcriptions from Grieg's best known and loved piano works. They are of intermediate to early advanced difficulty, with detailed fingering indications and extensive notes about the transcriptions and performance suggestions for each piece. This wonderful music, so easily and elegantly translated to the guitar, has previously been overlooked by most guitarists. These arrangements show that the results of the combination is better than might be expected. Standard notation only.
