Fantasia XII

Composer Players Instrument Notation Period
Molinaro, Simone (1565-1615) solo guitar standard Renaissance

This Fantasia is astonishingly ahead of its time. More than a century before equal temperament tuning, it modulates through what would be later called an entire circle of fifths. In standard notation this requires the use of many double flats, and is far easier to read in the tablature version (see lute music on this site.)
