A network for historic guitars and vihuelas
Hello, Can anyone recommend editions or sources of music by Vargas y Guzman? Thank you -- Thomas
Thank you, Thomas. I've emailed the Archive general de la nacion en Mexico City to ask about the edition of the 13 sonatas. Can the volumes be purchased from them?
I'm not sure. I bought the book years ago in Madrid in a music bookshop specialized in early music. Here is the link: http://www.ars-antiqva.com/
You might try finding the "Inter-American Music Review", Volume VI. Fall 1984, Number 1. pp. 1-28 for the article titled "Two Eighteenth-Century Treatises (at Mexico City) On Instrumental Music by Juan José Escorza and José Antonio Robles-Cahero. They reproduce 13 sonatas, possibly by Vargas y Guzman. The score is in treble clef and very lightly figured bass clef.
