Bach, Johann Sebastian
The original piece is part of Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068, written for his patron Prince Leopold sometime between the years 1717 and 1723. The air is usually played slowly and freely, and features an intertwining harmony and melody. The title comes from violinist August Wilhelmj's late 19th century arrangement of the piece for violin and piano. By transposing the key of the piece from its original D major to C major, Wilhelmj was able to play the piece on only one string of his violin, the G string.
Henry Holcombe (1690-1750) was an english singer and harpsichord player. Very little is known about him, but he taught singing and composed songs that were popular at the London pleasure gardens. This lovely Air is a very fine example of english baroque music.
Voice part included (German, English). Franz Schubert (1797 - 1828) was an Austrian composer. He wrote some 600 Lieder, nine symphonies, liturgical music, operas, and a large body of chamber and solo piano music. He is particularly noted for his original melodic and harmonic writing.
A very sweet piece for a sweet little lady.
This is an arrangement of a solo guitar piece. It is simple and sounds well. Enjoy!
This well-known Berceuse by Fauré is both cheerful and soothing - enjoy!
"It sounds like it bobs along". So said my daughter when she heard this simple little guitar trio. Have a listen and see what you think...
This is a traditional Swedish bridal march (wedding march) from Delsbo, possibly composed by parish clerk and organist P. Soderblom around 1840. It's still a very popular march at weddings in Sweden. This arrangement is in a very traditional style for guitar trio.
Calm and get it is perfect for relaxing. Press that MP3 play button, have a listen, and 'unwind'. Enjoy!
This is a trio realization of a piece by the 17th century Spanish guitarist Gaspar Sanz. I have avoided the temptation to "plump it up" so that the simple charm of Sanz' music is maintained and to keep it accessible to as many guitarists as possible. The dynamics and colour changes are editorial; the ornaments are from Sanz' manuscript.
This perennial favourite works well for 3 guitars by having all three parts play the canon and having the ground (bass) move from part to part. The pizzicato effect and artificial harmonics are optional. Enjoy!
Handel, George Frideric
George Frideric Handel (1685 - 1759) was a German-British Baroque composer who is famous for his operas, oratorios, and concertos. His works include Messiah, Water Music, and Music for the Royal Fireworks. He was strongly influenced by the techniques of the great composers of the Italian Baroque and the middle-German polyphonic Choral tradition.
In any Hispanic country, a cup of hot chocolate, or 'chocolate' (cho-co-la-te) is a sweet, spicy, frothy and iridescent treat that must be experienced. I hope that this piece captures at least a small amount of that sensuality. Salud!
This well known concerto was originally for lute, two violins and continuo. In this arrangement, the soloing is shared between Guitars 1 and 2, while Guitar 3 provides the continuo, in this case a 'stripped down' version which allows for a crisp, clear performance. Enjoy!
It's simple, it's fun, it's pop, and it's easy listening.......and, oh! the title? Just sing along with the opening bar and listen.....it fits!
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 – 1791) was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era. His output of over 600 compositions includes works widely acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, piano, operatic, and choral music. Mozart is among the most enduringly popular of classical composers, and many of his works are part of the standard concert repertoire.
