Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Between 1674 and 1675, the Spanish composer Gaspar Sanz printed a pioneering collection of pieces for the Spanish guitar. It was remarkable in many ways. First, Sanz engraved all the music plates himself, something probably necessary because there was virtually no music printing in Spain at this time. Second, Gaspar Sanz provided a huge quantity of information and instruction, including not only his entire musical output in three books printed in two years, but the most complete and useful guitar treatise of his time!

Expedition Audio Recommended
This recent release on the Cantus label titled 'Laberinto Ingeniosos' (Ingenious Labyrinth) is devoted entirely to the colorful and infectiously high-spirited music of Sanz. Xavier Díaz-Latorre plays the five-course baroque guitar and percussionist Pedro Estevan adds the spice with authentic percussion instruments of the Spanish baroque... These two performers are marvelous musicians and Cantus' engineering is excellent. Overall, this is an enlightening and enjoyable glimpse of the guitar at the dawn of its time. ... read more ...
