Guitarist and musicologist Thomas Schmitt is heard on this new Centaur CD in an enjoyable program from Spain of sonatas, variations and dances for guitar. The album title is Spanish music for 6-course guitar around 1800. What is most unique and interesting about the disc begins with the instrument itself. During the 18th century and well into the 19th century the guitar in Spain was strung in courses, rather than single strings. A course is two or more adjacent strings tuned to the same pitch, or as is often the case for the lower courses, in octaves.

This article lists the classical guitar music in the classical guitar repertoire. It includes baroque guitar and vihuela music, but not lute music. This music is most commonly performed by classical guitarists and requires the use of a variety of classical guitar techniques to play.

Spain was indeed the place of birth of the Baroque guitar. Not only the earliest publications of music for the instrument appear in that country, but the fact that the instrument was referred to as chitarra spagnuola in both Italy and France reinforce this notion. The publication of music for the five-course guitar in Spain begins with the publication of Juan Carlos Amat’s Guitarra Española de cinco órdenes in 1596. Amat was a doctor by profession and his book a practical tutor on how to play the guitar by strumming a series of chords  . Foriano Pico’s Nuova scelta di sonate per la chitarra spagnola.

As the Baroque guitar and its repertoire in Spain (1600-1750) will be the focus of this essay it is important to understand its evolution and the early history of the guitar and guitar-like instruments in Spain and Europe. There are three main tunings of the Baroque guitar, the Spanish the French and the Italian. In all three systems each string is grouped together in pairs, this is known as courses or in Spanish órdenes. The pairs are usually tuned in octaves or unisons and it is these different combinations that give us the three tuning variations.
