After the height of glory reached in the first decades of the nineteenth century, the guitar in Europe underwent a slow and relentless decline which distanced it from the concert halls. The music for guitar in Spain, as well as referring in style to the ancient splendours of the classical period and to the new free forms of Romanticism such as the Nocturnos, drew from the folklore heritage, offering pieces of clearly popular tradition.
The selection here gathers together music by Spanish guitarists who were alive after the death of Dionisio Aguado (Madrid, 1784-1849) and who composed throughout the second half of the nineteenth century up until the beginning of the twentieth, leaving to Francisco Tárrega (Villareal, Castellón, 1852 – Barcellona, 1909), the task of finally restoring to the guitar the role it once had.

These three volumes are each subtitled ‘Anthology of Guitar Works by Spanish Masters of the 19th Century’. The editor, Mario Martino, has assembled a collection of guitar works by a handful of Spanish guitarists who were composing throughout the second half of that century. For the editing of the music of these three books, the first printed editions were used, and any obvious errors, omissions, and inaccuracies in the originals have been corrected by Martino. ... These three publications are models of superior presentation, with easy-to-read printed scores produced on off-white good-quality paper, and all three bound with an eye-catching front cover featuring the painting ‘Woman with a Parrot’ by the 19th century Spanish artist Raimundo de Madrazo y Garreta. Some of the left-hand fingering is questionable, particularly in the more advanced pieces, but anyone skillful enough to take on this material should be more than capable of working out their own fingering.

Tre importanti volumi editi dalla Ut Orpheus esplorano e mettono a disposizione degli studiosi la letteratura spagnola del periodo romantico e tardo romantico ... I tre volumi sono suddivisi per difficoltà e per genere musicale ... Il valore didattico è sicuro ed elevato, ma all’interno troviamo anche brani che possono fare la loro bella figura in sale da concerto. (F. Cavallone)
