Third degree Mudarra


This piece "Fantasía que contrahaza la harpa en la manera de Ludovico" was intended for the vihuela.
Using only four strings, be careful of your fingers!

  1. Can you play this one? Quite a challenge. I am a novice of classical music. I would love a bit more info about the history of these tunes. Thanks for taking the time to arrange these.

  2. Thank you for the thanks, Heidi, much appreciated!
    A challenge indeed.... in this case, a bit of a lark as well: far beyond my own level of playing, but hopefully other people may enjoy this.
    History: google the name of the composer and the title of the tune (try Google Books and Google Scholar also) and you'll find all the information I myself have and more.
