Robert deVisée (c.1650-1725)

Suite No.11 B-minor

-Prelude

-Allemande

-Sarabande

-Gigue

-Passacaille

The French lutist and guitarist, Robert deVisée, has a large repertoire for the Baroque guitar. This instrument was, however, very different from the modern guitar. The instrument was more limited in producing counterpoint, especially in the bass. This resulted some odd harmonic movements. The composer even apologizes for this in some manuscripts. DeVisée has versions of these suites also for a melody instrument and basso continuo. I chose to use both versions in transcribing this piece. Had the composer had a modern instrument in his hands, he probably would have written in a very different manner.


The Suite has a prelude and four dances. The Allemande, “German dance”, is in this case an “allemande-gay”, not as heavy as usual. The Sarabande is especially lively here, it has no strong second beat at all. This is one of the original, wild, fast, and even sinful Sarabandes. Later on this dance form became slower and more serious.


Johann Kaspar Mertz(1806-1856)

Three Schubert Arrangements

Elegie

The guitar was tremendously popular in the beginning of the 19th century. Its popularity waned somewhat in the following decades. J.K.Mertz was one of the very few successful guitarist-composers of the time. As a composer, he is not mentioned in the general music history books, and is hardly comparable to the greatest composers of his days. However, he manages to bring all the elements together in some of his compositions. In Elegie, he seems to have hit the jackpot. A long introduction leads to a beautiful, singing melody that is varied until the dramatic coda.


Mertz arranged a lot of music for the guitar, from Schubert´s lieds to famous opera arias. The three arrangements to be heard in this concert, translate as “Resting place”, “Fisher maiden” and “Love´s message”.



Einojuhani Rautavaara (b.1928)

Serenades of the Unicorn

Einojuhani Rautavaara is the foremost composer of his generation in Finland. His output is large, including operas, orchestral works, chamber music and several pieces for solo instruments.


Rautavaara has composed a series of works with Unicorn as an alter-ego of the composer himself.. In the serenades, to judge from the titles, the Unicorn seems to be located in antiquity. Rarely has a modern guitar piece sounded so humorous. The piece takes advantage of some special effects, like the use of spoon in “Sereneding a pair of giggly nymphs”. The Serenades were written in 1977.



Luciano Berio (b.1925)

Sequenza XI

Although Berio is a contemporary of Rautavaara, he writes in a very different manner. Berio´s music is avantgardistic and revolutionary. He wrote sequenzas for various solo instruments, number eleven for the guitar. All the sequenzas are extremely virtuosic and full of explosive power. Sequenza XI plays with contradicting elements, violent rasguedos and harmonics, fast repetitions and slower cords.





John Dowland (1563 - 1626)

A Fancy

Sir John Smith, His Almain

Forlorne Hope Fancy

When I first started to visit guitar concerts, I heard performances of a large quantity of the music of John Dowland. Nowadays, guitarists seem to have left Dowland´s pieces for lutists to play, unlike the music of J.S.Bach, for instance. I find this is a shame. Dowland´s lute music is marvellous, and it works mostly untranscribed on the guitar. Also, the lute concerts are so few, that in order to keep Dowland´s instrumental music well-known, we guitarists are obliged to play it.



Dowland´s melancholy is well presented in the two Fancies. Sir John Smith, his Almain shows a more cheerful and virtuosic side of the composer. Forlorne hope fancy is based on a descending cromatic theme. This master-piece is one of the greatest ever written for the instrument.
