Editorial Reviews

For master lutenist and guitarist Jerry Willard's third Lyrichord CD, he takes on the now rarely heard Baroque guitar, performing musical gems of the baroque era composed by four different masters: Gaspar Sanz, Santiago de Murcia, John Anton Logy and Ludovico Roncalli. The Suite in A Minor by Johan Anton Logy is rarely heard on Baroque guitar and is thought to be a transcription by the composer himself written specifically for the instrument. And to top off this baroque guitar confection is Roncalli's Passacaglia - a piece made famous hundreds of years later in an orchestral arrangement by the Italian composer Ottorino Respighi in his Ancient Dances and Airs for Lute Suites.

Nigel North released his Guitar Collection - music for vihuela and Baroque guitar played on historic instruments - in 1984. Since that time there have been significant advances in knowledge and performance practise of Baroque music, particularly instrumental sonatas and concerti, and more recently, Baroque opera. Throughout this period the lute and theorbo have maintained a constant presence, but this has not been the case for the vihuela and Baroque guitar. It has only been comparatively recently that there has developed a serious interest in in these instruments that has concomitantly generated a number of CD releases by various artists playing on repro instruments. Jerry Willard's offering adds to the list of music for the Baroque guitar, with a selection of works by Sanz, de Murcia, Roncalli, and the little heard Bohemian composer Johan Anton Logy (a complete suite in a minor). While lacking the lyricism of Jose Miguel Moreno, or the fluency of Rafael Andia, Willard's playing is nonetheless competent, and he is easily able to bring to life the dance rhythms in the music of Sanz and de Murcia. The accompanying notes are brief but provide sufficient information on each composer. The CD is easy to listen to, and worth buying by those who play Baroque guitar or who are interested in the music of the Baroque guitar, if for no other reason than because of the relative lack of music available in this genre.

The heyday of Baroque guitar has long passed, of course, though a mild resurgence of interest in this almost obsolete and rarely heard instrument seems to have emerged in the past few decades. It reigned as a dominant European chordophone from roughly 1600 to 1750 and eventually morphed into a primordial modern guitar. Much smaller than its modern namesake, with 5 string courses (each course contains two strings to create a doubling effect, like a modern 12-string guitar), it resembles a rococo ukulele and sounds similar enough to a lute for uninitiated listeners to mistake it for one. Many featured breathtakingly elaborate decorations on their soundholes, bridges and fretboards. Looking fully like delicate and precious museum pieces, most now sit ominously silent and out of reach, as though encased in some form of invisible solemn amber, in those austere temples of cultural preservation. Given that, and other obvious reasons, the musically curious must usually resort to reproductions to hear this instrument. Many incredible reproductions exist, including the one played by Jerry Willard on the collection appropriately titled "The Baroque Guitar."

Containing numerous examples from four of the instrument's most celebrated composers (Sanz, Murcia, Logy and Roncalli), this entire album features solo baroque guitar exquisitely played with historically accurate techniques. From the rollicking rasgueado of "Canarios" to the more delicate finger plucking of a Prelude by Roncalli, it covers a vast array of Baroque guitar styles and repertoire. Many will recognize Sanz's gorgeous "Maricapalos," often called one of the most beautiful melodies in all classical music.

I do admittedly draw distinctions between artists and the quality of their work, but it does not matter where they learned to play, so long as the sound is true to its origins. This record remains loyal to the period in which it was written, and thus has that original sound which produces a realistic creation of music that was written so long ago.

Five stars for quality and traditional sound.
