Volume 8 of Miguel Llobet's Guitar Works.

We present a new authoritative reading of Manuel de Falla’s Homenaje. Based on the 1926 Chester edition, with added additional fingering and playing indications from a previously unknown manuscript of Llobet of 1922 in contrasting typography. Thanks to these we arrive at and are able to present an authentic, balanced, proven and new perspective and reading of this famous work.

Llobet’s transcriptions of the Romance del Pescador and the Canción del Fuego Fatuo are published here for the first time.

This edition is generously documented and contains several Manuscripts of Llobet and Falla, as well as some recently discovered letters from Falla to Llobet which confirm Llobet’s close and welcomed cooperation with Falla in arriving in 1920 at what was to be published in the Guitar Review, and then later in the 1926 Chester edition. Our edition includes the ‘Homenaje’ from ‘La Guitarra’, Falla’s article ‘Claude Debussy et l’Espagne’ and the edition of the ‘Homenaje’ from ‘La Revue Musicale’ (1920) as well as the version of the Homenaje published in Argentina in 1923. As with the other volumes of the series this edition includes historical notes and a comprehensive critical commentary by Stefano Grondona.

We are delighted to offer a free CD of the three works in this volume plus 11 bonus tracks.

Our CD offers wonderful performances of Llobet’s complete transcriptions of Falla’s music transcribed for solo guitar, guitar duo, voice & guitar.

Interpreters: Stefano Grondona (guitar), Laura Mondiello (guitar) María José Montiel (Mezzo-Soprano)

PUBLISHED SEPTEMBER 2020

Here are six beautiful compositions by Ponce. None of these actually had the benefit of have being performed or recorded by Andrés Segovia. With this issue we redress this imbalance thanks to Stefano Gronfona, a favourite pupil of Segovia.

Dos Viñetas: Vespertina y Rondino (Matinal)

Dos Canciones Mexicanas: Estrellita, Cuiden su vida,

Final del Homenaje a Tárrega, Variaciones - Tema de A. de Cabezón (Jean Tisserand)

The accompanying CD also contains the following 4 bonus tracks in addition to recordings of the entire contents of the album: Andante de la Sonata II (Thorens), La Pajarera, Por ti mi corazón, La Valentina. Note that all 5 canciones mexicanas are presented on this CD.

PUBLISHED APRIL 2020

Tárrega's unedited transcription of Albéniz’ Célebre Serenata Española (Cádiz) in the key of G has just recently been identified by Stefano Grondona in a manuscript copied by Miguel Llobet, probably while he was still a pupil of Tárrega.

This beautiful and subtle transcription is not overcomplicated to play, Tárrega did not try to do everything, as some more recent transcribers have attempted to do. The melody sings and the accompaniment is subtly always there. The tuning with the 5th string to G, and the 6th to D, is no hindrance - on the contrary it is a boon. We are not aware of any published version of this work in G major, and this particular version has never been published until now. We are delighted to make it available for the first time in a new scholarly edition prepared from Llobet’s meticulously accurate manuscript, a copy of which is reproduced in the edition.
