Renaissance lute pieces arranged for guitar - Edition with pieces from Germany

After England, France and Italy there is now from Werner Reif a new game booklet with Renaissance lute pieces arranged for guitarthat deals with German compositions. He arranged 37 pieces that were written for the lute for the guitar, thus expanding the repertoire of Renaissance music (which is currently very popular) for non-lute players as well.

Lute and guitar are generally tuned in fourths, but there is either a major third between the second and third strings (guitar) or between the third and fourth strings (or chorus) for the lute. Therefore recommends Werner Reif in the preface to retune the g-string of the guitar to f sharp. This simplifies the game of literature when you get used to it (of course you can play the music without changing your mind) and increases the authenticity of the sound. Furthermore, he recommends the use of a capo in the 2nd (or 3rd) fret, in order to come close to the original tuning of the lute. Good, that Werner Reif all of this is explained in the foreword, because unfortunately such explanations are often not given. But these are important for understanding the music.

The choice of composers and pieces is very successful. There is a brief overview of every composer - if information was available. The notation is very clear. Even with somewhat longer works, you don't have to scroll through without compromising legibility. There are many fingerings in the sheet music to play the pieces as in the original scores. Werner Reif but points out that these are only suggestions. In any case, these are a good starting point. Once you get used to the retuned string, many of the pieces can be learned quickly and easily and you get a nice feel for the music. An approximate tempo would have been desirable, on the other hand you have as much freedom in the design as was possible in the original.

Renaissance lute pieces arranged for guitar - Germany is a fine music book for the classical guitarist who wants to get closer to renaissance music. The well-prepared transcriptions of the game pieces are just fun and the price is cheap. Highly recommended!
