Born in 1640, Gaspar Sanz is generally considered the greatest Spanish guitarist and composer of the seventeenth century. His three surviving instruction books (published in 1697) contained over 100 guitar pieces, ranging from simple, strummed rasgueado pieces, to the intricate fantasias, pavanas, and gallardas using the plucked panteado style.

Jerry Willard has transcribed these pieces in standard notation and tablature. These volumes also include an introduction with a biography of Sanz, and performance notes on the baroque guitar style; pictures and text from the original instruction books, and much more. The CDs include performances of a selection of the pieces.

The Complete Works of Gaspar Sanz is a must for serious students of the classical guitar!

Gaspar Sanz was one of the most celebrated guitarists and composers of his time. In 1674 he published a method for the baroque guitar. This method has been lauded by guitar aficinados and serves as a significant historic work. Written in Old Spanish with the tablature system of its day, this method has only been available to the few who would meticulously research and decipher its hidden meanings. For the first time ever, the complete manuscript of Sanz' legacy has been translated into English and the tablature arrangements now include standard music notation. Jerry Willard has also included arrangements for the modern guitar and performs selections from this body of work on both the baroque and modern guitar which can be found on the accompanying CDs.

A 216-page book and CD, plus a 56-page book and CD, together in a slipcase.
