Description
This volume deals with three topics. First, Llobet´s deep and inspiring relationship with the people music of Argentina, a country he toured 5 times. It includes his special arrangements, a sort of tribute, to the music of that country in the form of transcriptions of 3 Tristes by Pedro Quijano. We are pleased to be able to present the first publication of Llobet´s own beautiful interpetation of the ´Triste´ a typical genre in Argentinian music.
Secondly we introduce a selection of Llobet´s pupils, who included Prat, Segovia and Regino and Eduardo Sáinz de la Maza, María Luisa Anido, Rey de la Torre and Severino López and many others.
Thirdly, for the first time Llobet´s own studies have been collected, and reclaimed, and appear complete. There are ingenious and challenging.

Miguel Llobet (1878-1938)
Llobet’s life-span is almost exactly one century later than his compatriot Fernando Sor, prompting the Italian guitarist and researcher Stefano Grondona to name Sor and Llobet a “Catalonian Binomial”. Both figures are clearly very different from their respective contemporaries. Llobet’s output of only 14 original works is heavily outnumbered by his 118 innovative transcriptions and adaptations for guitar, guitar duo, and guitar ensemble. He was a revolutionary but modest man with a deep respect for the past, who forged the way for the guitar into the 20th century. As the only virtuoso pupil of Tárrega, his destiny was to be a key link between the guitar’s past and its future - his influence was immense; wherever he went he changed the way the guitar was played and perceived. He continued his leading role in the development of the guitar into the first three decades of the 20th century and was hugely influential in the development of Andrés Segovia.
