New critical collected edition
An extremely richly illustrated guitar edition with many previously unpublished unique manuscripts, rare documents and intereresting photographs.
Thanks to the generosity of more than 50 contributors and the recent discoveries of more of Llobet’s manuscripts, we are able to include some 60 formerly unpublished works. If you want all his works this is the only edition for you.
As a collection our Llobet edition is cheaper than the famous Llobet UME edition of 1964, which has considerably fewer titles and no accompanying texts or commentaries.
Our music engraving is clear, accurate and legible and no one is more qualified, than Stefano Grondona, after 30 years of research on Llobet, and after having recorded Llobet’s complete works on six CDs, to edit an edition of this scope and complexity with its informative texts and comprehensive critical apparatus.
The edition is immensely informative, it clearly demonstrates Llobet’s true role as the pivotal figure of 20th century guitar history – the link between the past and the present and his active role in the publication of Manuel de Falla’s ‘Homenaje’. The edition follows his compositions, his successes on 3 continents, and tells a remarkable story, not only about Llobet but also about the vibrant international cultural life in Barcelona and ‘El Modernismo’, the Catalan ‘Art Nouveau’. Many autograph manuscripts are reproduced, as well as concert programmes, rare documents and photographs.
An optional thematic index referenced to the edition is available, and our editions are all printed in Germany at concert size on best quality 100gsm music paper with durable laminated covers.
