Description
This project transcribes for classical concert guitar the lute and theorbo sonatas of Silvius Leopold Weiss (1686-1750). Weiss was a first-rate composer and a contemporary of Bach; in fact, Weiss was the more famous of the two during their lifetime. His twenty-nine surviving works are on a level with the great piano concertos of their age, the only reason for their disappearance from the concert repertoire being the speed with which the instruments for which Weiss wrote became obsolete.
