Composer: Carlos Seixas

Arranger: Rebeca Oliveira

Solo guitar | Advanced


"This transcription follows the tradition of the old guitar masters of arranging baroque keyboard Sonatas such as the ones by Antonio Soler and Domenico Scarlatti. Sonata 67 presents us with an interesting duality: on one side it has a driving momentum with its leaping intervals and on the other side, its sentimental lyricism. Sonata 74, also transcribed in the original key (A minor), begins with a simple but virtuosic Allegro, followed by and elegant Minuet. Therefore and ince again concerning a matter of taste, there is no ornamentation in this Sonata, since I believe that the clarity and purity of the music should be highlighted. 

In the Sonatas that end with a Minuet, the repetition of a previous movement can be an interpretative option.

The fingerings in both Sonatas are chosen according to the articulation and phrasing. In these Sonatas it is possible to appreciate the juxtaposition between the European music of the time and the melancholic and nostalgic Portuguese character.
