For Solo Guitar

  • Preface by Brian Jeffery

  • 21 Pieces for Solo Guitar

  • 132 Pages

Manjón’s Works for Guitar is an exciting collection filling a large gap in the history of the classical guitar.  Nearly all these 21 pieces are here published for the first time since their own day (around 1910).  They include dances,  arrangements,  and extended pieces which will add considerably to the guitar’s repertory.
Antonio Jimenez Manjón was born in Villacarrillo,  Spain,  in 1866.  He lost his sight at an early age.  He became a virtuoso guitarist and gave concerts throughout Europe (including London).  In 1893 he settled in Buenos Aires,  where he taught,  composed,  and played in many concerts until his death there in 1919.  Like Barrios,  Tárrega,  and many others,  he was a noted performer on the guitar as well as a composer.  His music is strongly in a Hispanic tradition.  He himself played the eleven-string guitar,  but his published pieces are generally for the six-string guitar.
This book presents 21 pieces.  They will help to enlarge the repertory of the guitar today and to cast light on an interesting period in its history.  They consist of sixteen original works of which three are relatively extended,  four arrangements from other composers,  and one song for voice and guitar,  all presented in reprints of the original Buenos Aires and Spanish editions.
