Composer Players Instrument Notation Period
Weiss, Sylvius Leopold (1686-1750) solo guitar standard Baroque

Originally for Baroque lute, this is a contrapuntal delight that fits easily on the guitar. The last measures call for a free, improvisatory manner. Arpeggiate the half-note chords as you like. The MIDI sound file of the Capriccio is not a good model for the last measures. My thanks to Thomas Scharkowski for pointing out several errors that I had made in the score. [3 pages, 115KB]
