Neue Schreibart – 19th Century Guitar Music from Austria and Germany

It gives me great pleasure to add another composition to this new series dedicated to 19th century music for guitar from Austria and Germany. The term “Neue Schreibart” (new style of writing) dates back to Simon Molitor (1766-1848) and the preface to his Sonata Op. 7 (1806), in which he demands this new approach to composition, orthography, and music notation, leading to a “solid” playing style. Molitor, a composer, guitarist, and musicologist from Neckarsulm, wanted to bring the latest developments in harmony and counterpoint to the relatively new idiom of the 6-string guitar.

This series aims to introduce many of the wonderful, but as yet little-known, works for guitar from 19th century Austria and Germany. Most of the works stem from the collection of the “Gitarristische Vereinigung”, held by libraries in Augsburg and Munich. It will provide a platform to offer critical performance editions to today’s guitarists, and create a new impulse for the extension of today’s repertoire for our instrument.
