This series presents some of the most significant works of European and Latin American music from the last three centuries transcribed for chamber guitar ensemble (in formations ranging from duo to quartet). The works contained in each volume have been selected both for their intrinsic artistic value and their potential to enhance sound production and playing technique.
All of the transcriptions are strictly faithful to the original texts and have been reworked in order to make them suitable for players at all levels, from novice to professional. “Guitar Ensemble” is therefore an effective aid for the study of ensemble music from middle and high school up to a conservatory level. Italian Portrait is a selection of works of the Italian composers Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805), Ottorino Respighi (1879-1936), Pietro Mascagni (1863-1945) and Alessandro Spazzoli (1964).
