Additional Info

Bolognese guitarist composer Angelo Michele Bartolotti published two books of guitar music in the mid-17th century. This work, a virtuosic but always idiomatic sequence of variations on a ground bass has been transcribed from his second publication Secondo libro di Chitarra (ca. 1655). This is intended as a performance edition and has been reworked for the modern guitar. Also included in the introduction is a short guide to period performance. This piece is a fine and accessible introduction to the sadly neglected guitar music of this period
