In this book, masterful Uruguayan guitarist and teacher Abel Carlevaro (1918-2001) offers insights to the performance of the ?12 Studies? (1929) by Heitor Villa-Lobos. Without presenting the complete works being analyzed, Carlevaro guides the student through the most challenging parts of each of these twelve landmark pieces. Using short examples and facsimiles of a few bars of the original manuscripts given to him by Villa-Lobos himself, Carlevaro reveals profound and illuminating insights. For the advanced student, it?s almost like being in a real master class with the maestro himself. This book is written in standard notation only.
"Villa-Lobos gave birth to the modern guitar, forging a new path for it; the newly expanded musical and technical possibilities have greatly benefited the repertoire for the instrument." -Abel Carlevaro
