Gentili, Lisanella - Impromptu - Video

Post by Kostas Manolkidis » Fri Feb 22, 2019 10:41 pm

Hello everyone! This is the first video I uploaded on YouTube recently (/home recording).
A beautiful little piece "Impromptu" composed by the female guitarist Lisanella Gentili.
More to come soon.
You are welcome to share your thoughts!

Kostas.

Super. Can you tell us anything about the composer?

It reminded me a little of Ernest Shand.

Unfortunately not even her birth date is known to us. I tried to do some research on her, but except for the 3 pieces that have been released in guitar collections of her time, nothing else exists.

Thank you very much!!
The score is free for everyone to find. It was included in the A. Vizzari editions guitar collection "Biblioteca del chitarrista".
