Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre Classical Guitar - Solo Guitar Sheet Music
(sorted by Name)

Élisabeth-Claude Jacquet de La Guerre was not a proponent of the guitar. This was because (multiple choice): she’d never heard the guitar; she’d never even heard of guitar; she played and composed for harpsichord.

For those of you playing along at home, the answer, of course, is D, all the above. Jacquet de La Guerre was active in the late 1600s and early 1700s, while the guitar as we know it today didn’t come into prominence until the mid-1800s. The vihuela, a small plucked string similar to a guitar, appeared in Spain around the turn of the fifteenth century, but it wasn’t until Antonio de Torres, born in Spain in 1817, made a larger and louder version of the instrument that the guitar gained prominence.

So Jacquet de La Guerre, born in 1665 in Paris to a family of musicians and musical instrument makers, was never acquainted with the instrument. No matter, as she became an acclaimed harpsichordist and one of the few celebrated female composers of the day. France’s King Louis XIV took notice of her playing when she was just five years old, and she eventually became a musician in his court. She wrote most of her works under his patronage.
