KAPSBERGER TOCCATA ARPEGGIATA PDF

As alien as it might look to most of us now, it was one of the favoured instruments of 17th-Century Italy. The number of strings and the unusual tuning allowed a skilled player to provide what a normal lute could provide, plus an accompanying bass line. Listening to this piece by Johannes Kapsberger, I suddenly began to wonder how in the world a person living in the modern world decides to seek out and master an instrument that is so old and so odd. So I reached out to Lucas Harris, who plays theorbo with an acclaimed Baroque orchestra in my home town.

As alien as it might look to most of us now, it was one of the favoured instruments of 17th-Century Italy. The number of strings and the unusual tuning allowed a skilled player to provide what a normal lute could provide, plus an accompanying bass line. Listening to this piece by Johannes Kapsberger, I suddenly began to wonder how in the world a person living in the modern world decides to seek out and master an instrument that is so old and so odd.

So I reached out to Lucas Harris, who plays theorbo with an acclaimed Baroque orchestra in my home town.

A professional lutenist needs at least a few instruments to cover all the necessary repertoire: you need at least a Renaissance lute, theorbo, and Baroque guitar, and probably an archlute. I also have a couple of Baroque lutes, a cittern, bandora, Renaissance guitar, and early 19c classical guitar — about a dozen total. Getting back to the question, the short answer is that all working lutenists play theorbo. What do you love about the instrument?

Many of us also fall in love with its deep tone and big resonance, and that it gives a wonderful support when accompanying melody instruments or singers. He also told me that it would be pretty difficult for a guitarist to learn the theorbo, which, while unsurprising, kind of saddened me a bit. A small corner of my imagination had started to visualize myself sitting in the town square in Milan, a fancy baroque hat on my head, and a theorbo in my arms.

What makes this a beautiful song: 1. Often, two notes in the arpeggio will be the same, but played on different strings.

It could almost have been written in the same era as the song we featured in week Recommended listening activity:.

KAPSBERGER TOCCATA ARPEGGIATA EPUB

Back to index of guitar tablature pages by Donald Sauter. The first one, "Toccata Arpeggiata" for chitarrone, is just a series of chords that the performer is supposed to arpeggiate however he likes. I thought it was pretty neat. I also thought it was pretty hard, the way it stacked up small intervals. But a blindly struck guitar gives you fourths, on the average. It takes a real effort to stack up seconds and thirds!
