An exact contemporary of Bach, Silvius Leopold Weiss (1687-1750) was one of the greatest lutenists of all time. He was also a prolific and brilliant composer. This collection of arrangements for solo guitar is an ideal introduction to Weiss's music. The ten varied pieces were carefully chosen for their musical character and technical suitability. Placed in order of difficulty, they reflect the range of skills required for Baroque repertoire, at intermediate and advanced levels. Includes stylish and idiomatic adaptations, preserving the original ornamentation and left-hand slurs. Core repertoire for Grades 6-8, with pieces on the ABRSM guitar syllabus. Carefully considered fingering, both clear and consistent.
