Foscarini, G. P. - Pavaniglia - Baroque guitar Video

Post by Valéry Sauvage » Wed Mar 30, 2011 7:45 am

Less known than Sanz or De Visée, Giovanni Paulo Foscarini compose for baroque guitar, many pieces in Alfabetto (popular style of strummed chords), punteado (finger picking...) and mixed styles, punteado and strummed chords.
This piece is just punteado.
This is a spanish pavan, on the same theme as the earlier ones by Vallet, Francisque, Robinson.

Pavaniglia con parti variate :

Enjoyable music, beautifully played :bravo:

I have a 1964 edition of some of his music, edited by Alexander Bellow, in which Foscarini is said to have been known by various pen names - he is referred to as L'Academico Caliginoso detto il Furioso :!:

My edition is the 1640 fac-simile (Spes edition) and the front page says Autore : L'academico Caliginoso detto Il furioso ;-)
