After the piano and harpsichord, the guitar is the instrument most
associated with Domenico Scarlatti (1685–1757). Many of his
keyboard works were influenced by the guitar music of Spain, his
adopted country.

This collection of arrangements for solo guitar is an ideal introduction
to Scarlatti’s music. The ten varied pieces were carefully chosen for
their musical character and technical suitability. Placed in order of
difficulty, they reflect the range of skills required for Baroque repertoire,
at intermediate and advanced levels.

    guitar syllabus
  • carefully considered fingering, both clear and consistent
