Italian composer Domenico Scarlatti lived for many years in Spain, where he wrote most of his keyboard works while working at the Spanish court. He moved to Seville inliving there during four years before he moved to Madrid, where he remained living as a court composer until his final days. Some of his one movement sonatas were meant to be played in pairs, as in the possible case of Sonatas K.

They are both in the key of A major, with a well-defined two-part structure. This dance was often played on the guitar, which was used as a strummed accompaniment to singers and dancers. Bach’s suite BWV has two versions: This seven movement suite dates from the second half of the s, when he was living as a church composer in Leipzig and working as the director of the collegium musicum, a voluntary association of professional musicians and university students that gave regular weekly public scarlatto.

Bach directed this association from tohaving resumed it for a few more years in This particular prelude is used as an introduction to the suite, a kind of practice initiated by Italian composer Arcangelo Carelli It has a vivid and joyful character, featuring some characteristics Bach is known for, such as, the use of implied polyphony and counterpoint.

This work was later rearranged and used as the introduction of his cantata ‘Wir danken broouwer, Gott’, BWV Bach’s lute works are believed by some researchers to have been conceived under a partial influence of the renowned lutenist Sylvius Leopold Weiss, who was a close friend.


Bach’s contributions to the repertory bruower the brrouwer – which was not at its highest peak at the time – represent, together with the works of Weiss, the greatest achievement of the instrument’s 18 th century collection of nrouwer. It was written in the Romantic style in homage to Franz Schubert, who according to Ponce, ‘loved the guitar’.

The first movement – Allegro moderato- is written in the key of A major and starts with a theme borrowed from the opening of Schubert’s Sonata D. It has the same structure as the sonatas from the Romantic era, with the melodic material from the initial motive being explored in many different tonalities. The second movement – Andante espressivo – begins in the key of E major with a legato melody and its accompaniment. The first section features a lyricism compared to some of Schubert’s Lieder, followed by a middle chordal section which resembles his piano works.

As Segovia wrote in his letters to Ponce, ‘the andante is delightful: The third movement – Allegretto vivo – is inspired by the Moments Musicaux, a series of six piano pieces composed between and which are marked by subtle nuances of emotion through key modulations.

The first section alludes to Schubert’s Moments Musicaux no. These two sections are contrasting in character: The last movement – Allegro non troppo e serioso – combines various elements, taken not only from Schubert’s music, but from Romantic music in general. It begins with an energetic introduction which is followed by a Scherzo – a type of comic and playful composition – in the key of A major.

The first section is repeated in a different key, with the following Scherzo also transposed to another key. That leads to a final coda with a series of chords brouwdr arpeggiated until its conclusion with the A major chord, as in the beginning of the first movement.

Its richness of harmony and form resemble the finest piano sonatas from the Romantic era. Cuban composer Leo Brouwer’s Sonata was published in This work, dedicated to the great English guitarist Julian Bream, is part of Brouwer’s third phase as a composer, described by him as a ‘new simplicity’ era. This phase is characterized by the blending of modality and atonality, as well as elements from Cuban folk music, traditional music forms, structural fragmentation and the employment of simultaneous tonal centers.

Peo entire work is based on a four-note motive, which is repeated in various registers and pitches throughout all the movements.

The first movement – “Fandangos y Boleros” – incorporates rhythms from the Spanish styles mentioned in its scarlwtti, alternating between modality and atonality. A later section features the minimalist style, before a coda alluding to Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony no. It creates an ethereal atmosphere through the use of slow passages where all the notes are sustained, making the scarlatyi sound like a ‘dissonant harp’. The minimalist style is also present in this toccata written in rondo form, with an arpeggiated dcarlatti which is heard several times.

Brouwer’s work sounds idiomatic and at the same time musically rich, with its characteristic style hybridism. It is notable that he begins most of his compositions from the standpoint of what the guitar has to offer in terms of sounds and effects, creating a unique style of composition that sounds both modern and audibly enjoyable.
