Gaspar Sanz: Complete Music For Guitar

Alberto Mesirca

Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710) was born in Calanda, Aragón in Spain. As a young student he went to Italy to learn his craft and art, and studied with the masters in Rome and Naples. His most important publication was published in 1674: “Instrucción de música sobre la guitarra española” (Musical instruction for the Spanish Guitar).

This publication contains theoretical information, instructions on technical aspects of the instrument and its way of playing, and a great number of compositions. The publication had far reaching influence on generations of guitar players to come. This new recording presents the compositions from the manuscript, a wide variety of fugues and mainly dances: the Passacalle, Coriente, Zarabanda, Jiga and other popular dances, with roots in the rich folk music of both Spain and Italy.

Master guitarist Alberto Mesirca is twice winner of the Golden Guitar, for the best recording of the Year. He recorded the complete guitar music by Regondi and “Voces de Sefarad” , four centuries of Sephardic Songs.

Recorded in Treviso, Italy in November & December 2017.
