D01 Classical guitar lesson 10

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Mon Apr 14, 2014 2:04 pm

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the latest version of volume D01.
If you are new to the course, please read this message to familiarize yourself with the conditions for participating in the lessons. You should also read the first message in lesson 1, where you will find advice on how to make the most of your study time and on the methods of practising that I recommend.



First we will study some technical exercises from volume D01.
page 56 - Jean-François Delcamp (1956) Liaisons - Legature - Slurs - Ligados
page 56 - Jean-François Delcamp (1956) Accords – Chords





Finally, we'll look at 5 tunes, pages 49 to 52,
page 49 - Adrian Le Roy (ca. 1520-1598) Quatriesme bransle de poictou


In 1549, the French guitarist, lutenist, singer, editor and composer Adrian Le Roy entered into partnership with his cousin Robert Ballard. Together they founded a major publishing house. From 1551 to 1556, Adrian Le Roy and Robert Ballard published 5 books of tablature for guitar (Renaissance guitar with 5 courses of strings). Le Roy's bransles de poictou probably had their source in the popular tradition. Here the melody is accompanied by a single repeated bass note played by the thumb.

page 50 - Fernando Sor (1778-1839) Leçon III opus 60

page 51 - Joseph Küffner (1776-1856) Allegretto – duo
http://www.delcamp.net/joseph_kuffner.html
D01_Kuffner_Duos_opus_168_n4_g1.mp3
page 52 - Adrian Le Roy (ca. 1520-1598) Second bransle de poictou



page 52 - Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710) Villano


In volume D02, on page 49, you will find a chord version of this Villano in D major.
Spanish guitarist, organist, theoretician and composer, Gaspar Francisco Bartolome Sanz y Celma, born at Calanda (Teruel) on 4 April 1640, was a bachelor of theology at the university of Salamanca. Once he had finished his music studies in Spain, he completed his musical education with a journey to Italy, where he served as chapel organist to the Viceroy of Naples. When he returned to Spain, he became guitar teacher to Don Juan of Austria (son of King Philip IV of Spain).

In 1674, Gaspar Sanz published the first of the three volumes of his "Instruccion de musica sobre la guitarra española" for five-course guitar, of which one of the existing copies is preserved in the Calanda Town Hall (Ayuntamiento). In addition to being a learning method, this collection includes popular tunes and dances as well as several forms of serious music (fugues, passacailles). This work is the most complete publication for guitar of the period, and would be republished a further 8 times between 1674 and 1697. The pieces are presented in Italian tablature, i.e. inverted, with the bottom line designating the first string. He uses chord symbols in this work which are forerunners of modern notation.

Gaspar Sanz was one of the most significant guitarists, composers and theoreticians of the Baroque era. He doesn't only dominate his own century: he was to remain the essential reference in the following century for all treatises and all music publications for the guitar.

The works of Gaspar Sanz have often been arranged for the modern guitar by 20th century interpreters such as Emilio Pujol, Andres Segovia and Narcisso Yepes. Joaquin Rodrigo, the famous composer of the concerto d’Aranjuez, pays homage to Gaspar Sanz in his "Fantasía para un gentilhombre" for guitar and orchestra. From his own time right up until today, the popular themes of Gaspar Sanz's songs and dances have been passed on orally by street musicians.

I ask you first to work on all these exercises and tunes for a week and then to upload your recordings of:
page 56 - Jean-François Delcamp (1956) Accords – Chords
page 52 - Adrian Le Roy (ca. 1520-1598) Second bransle de poictou
page 52 - Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710) Villano



Good luck!

We have reached the end of this year of studying together. I am intending to resume next year.

My thanks to the students, to Geoff for his splendid translations, and also to Robert Goodwin, Alan (Tarbaby), Rich (oski79) and lagartija who have enabled these courses to run so smoothly.

I wish you all a good summer. See you again soon.

Jean-François

You're welcome, Shelby. By the way, I just noticed on the music for Second Bransle De Poictou, page 52, says to place a capo on fret V of the guitar, but Mr. Delcamp isn't using one on his. Are we supposed to use one on this tune? I notice the tune on page 49 calls for a capo, but he isn't using one on that one, either.

I noticed that also. I have started practicing it both ways.

I have a question about Villano on pg 52. I generally understand what a rest is, but I am not sure what the effect and purpose of the half rest in bar 1 and bar 3 has? Can someone please explain why and what the purpose of this is?

Thank you!
Bill

Bill, that's a good question. My thought is that there is a separation of the base notes played by the "p" and the high notes. You would almost think they are indicating a silencing of the D string except where indicated. There is probably some tech reason for it. In other words, I don't have a clue.

Shelby's explanation is pretty close, although the reference to silencing the D string is a bit strange ...

The Villano does have two voices and both the upper voice and lower voice are being completed in the bars (as in: each fills up to the equivalent value of 4 quarter notes or rests per bar). Now, the half rests indicate that the lower voice (mostly played with your thumb) is not present in the two half measures where this is present. In the music this is shown by a 'half rest'. The exact position of that half rest (in terms of the on which note it's present) is irrelevant, it just let's the musician know you shouldn't look for the lower voice notes on that location...

This piece does not have a lot of 'active' silencing of the notes, except when you repeat the music at the end of the score, the 'D' note has to be silenced (probably what was referred to in the previous post...). For this other half rest in bar 3, the 'D' note in the first half of the measure is effectively muted/damped by playing a rest stroke for the 'A' (first eighth note in the 2nd half of the measure).

Hope this helps ...

Cheers

Thank you both for your insights. I suspected it had something to do with making sure the lower voice was not present during the 1/2 rest. But I was confused because the 1/2 rest was so far up the staff and looked like it was in an irrelevant spot to the music. But your insight makes sense. :merci:

Hello everyone. Here are my posts for this lesson. Any feedback is welcomed. On Second Bransle De Poictou I didn't have a good thumb nail to sound the D string very well so it'll sound a little dull compared to the other notes. Also, I am not sure what the eyebrow symbol is for on the 24th bar at the end? I thought maybe it had to do with smacking your guitar at the end of the song like Mr. DelCamp did, so I tried to do that too. :?: :D If anyone knows what that is for, please tell me. Finally, I don't have a capo that fits my classical guitar so I did without one even though the music said to use one, Mr. DelCamp didn't have one so I just did it without one.
:merci:
Bill
