Carlevaro, Abel - Guitar Masterclass - Heitors Villa Lobos

Heitor Villa Lobos 


In this book, masterful Uruguayan guitarist and teacher Abel Carlevaro (1918-2001) offers insights to the performance of the ?5 Preludes? (1940) and ?Choro No. 1? (1920) by Heitor Villa-Lobos. Without presenting the complete works being analyzed, Carlevaro guides the student through the most challenging parts of each of these landmark pieces. Using short examples in standard notation only, Carlevaro reveals profound and illuminating insights; for the advanced student, it?s almost like being in a real master class with the maestro himself.

"The guitar of Villa-Lobos opened up new paths in musical expression. Without doubt, through a surprising process of self teaching, he created an innovative technique that could not have been learnt in an academy, and also a personal technique, original because of its truthfulness, its message, its humanity and its life." -Abel Carlevaro

Why Transcribe? We look at a Bach Cello Suite.

Bach's First Cello Suite in D 

One of the best exercises for the guitarist is to transcribe pieces penned for other instruments into guitar renditions. Why is this so beneficial?  Well, we often play music specifically composed for our instrument and these pieces are written guitaristically.  The composer knows the limits of the instrument -- or at least what he or she feels are the limits -- and then crafts a melody that fits these preconceived notions.  Limits and constraint are the result.  

Taking a piece written for the piano (like Albeniz' material) or the piece we will be exploring -- Bach's First Suite for unaccompanied cello -- meanswe are forced to think outside the parameters we expect and get used to with guitar-specific pieces.  Wit the Bach piece, we are forced to put ourselves into Bach's mind and determine what harmonies he was implying with double stops on the cello -- very few complete chords, but much implied, subtle and sublime harmonies can be heard.  Whenever you are attempting a transcription, it is necessary that you not only have a benchmark edition of the piece specifically for the original instrument, but it is also a blessing to have a resource that shows the composer's original edition -- like the Bach Gesellschaft.  In the case of the Bach, numerous editions as well as Gesellschaft facsimiles are available.  What I've done here is reproduced my transcription of the Sarabande of the First Cello Suite.  You will note that there are harmonies that could not be played on the cello -- just try a six-note chord.

Baroque Music

The English word baroque is derived from the Italian barocco, meaningbizarre, though probably exuberant would be a better translation more accurately reflecting the sense. The usage of this term originated in the 1860s to describe the highly decorated style of 17th and 18th century religious and public buildings in Italy, Germany and Austria, as typified by the very baroque angelic organist adorning the Gottfried Silbermann organ completed in 1714 for the Cathedral in Freiberg, Saxony (illustrated above). Later, during the early-to-mid 1900s, the term baroque was applied by association to music of the 17th and early 18th century, and today the term baroque has come to refer to a very clearly definable type or genre of music which originated, broadly speaking, around 1600 and came to fruition between 1700 and 1750. 

Listen to music of the 1200s and 1300s. It's relatively primitive in terms of melody and harmony. If we move to the 1500s we find a great difference, as Italian music began to blossom and English composers like Dowland, Morley and Tomkins produced the wonderful melodies and surprisingly sensitive poetry which accompanied them - or vice versa. A major theme underlying music at that time however was the exploration of form. There was still so much new to discover: new melodic lines and harmonic progressions to be explored, new combinations of instruments, and new forms in music such as the fugue, canon, and variations on a bassline, a popular tune or a chorale. As the 1600s progressed, so these different musical forms took on definite shape, and the period from 1700 to 1750 can clearly be seen as the "high baroque". 

Two geographical influences were at work here. In north Germany and Holland, composers such as Froberger, Kerll, and particularly Dietrich Buxtehude were concentrating mainly on the art of counterpoint, especially the fugue. Here, organ and voice were the major elements. At the other end of Europe, in Rome, the instrumental forms of the sonata and concerto were formalized. Every period in music has certain recognizable clichés, and much of what is typical in baroque music, specific cadences and snatches of melody, can be traced back to one Arcangelo Corelli, who seems to have influenced just about everybody, from his Italian contemporaries and students to Handel who sojourned in Rome from 1704 to 1710. From Rome, the "Italian" influences spread northwards while the stricter north German forms flowed southwards, intermingling to produce a common baroque vocabulary. Indeed, the inter-mingling of musical trends from different parts of Europe was surprisingly extensive, considering the relatively primitive methods of travel and communication. Vivaldi, Geminiani, Corelli, Scarlatti, Handel and many others all met one another or were thoroughly conversant with one another's music. Bach journeyed north from his "base" in Thuringia and Saxony, southern Germany, to hear Buxtehude, and his later travels included Dresden and Berlin. Bach owned and/or copied the music of many of his contemporary composers, often re-writing them for different instruments. Indeed this was a recognized method of study widely practised in baroque times. 

It is also important, when studying the composers and their music of the baroque or indeed any age, to review the circumstances in which composers worked. Take Vivaldi for example. Though he wrote many fine concertos (like the Four Seasons and the Opus 3) he also wrote many works which sound like five-finger exercises for students. And this is precisely what they were. Vivaldi was employed for most of his working life by the Ospedale della Pietà. Often termed an "orphanage", this Ospedale was in fact a home for the female offspring of noblemen and their numerous dalliances with their mistresses. The Ospedale was thus well endowed by the "anonymous" fathers; its furnishings bordered on the opulent, the young ladies were well looked-after, and the musical standards among the highest in Venice. Many of Vivaldi's concerti were indeed exercises which he would play with his many talented pupils.

Scale Passages in Bach Chaconne

One of my all-time favorite pieces is the d minor Chaconne by Johann Sebastian Bach. Albert Valdes-Blain told me that no guitarist should play this piece in a recital until they'd reached their fortieth birthday. He felt a younger man couldn't possibly have built up the emotional 'bank account' to successfully impart anything to the music. My personal opinion? I don't believe any player will successfully find, interpret and deliver the full range of emotional content Bach wrote into this piece. It is a masterwork, some argue the one of the brightest lights of Western culture.

The Chaconne is a set of variations stemming from a brooding, dark theme crafted from a series of three and four note chords. Originally written for the violin, the violinist dreads the chordal variations and runs through the scale stuff. The guitarist breaths a sigh of relief on the chordal stuff and sweats the scales! One man's poison... Well, about two pages into the Segovia edition we find the first brutally quick scale passages. Due to the complexity of the implied harmonies in these melodic runs, the guitarist must articulate every note. Each note is a gem set by a master. This is not a chance to show off chops, it is an opportunity to touch souls!

Please note the drop D tuning. Practice this passage slowly and with an open ear. The harmonies are simply spectacular. As with all exercises I've given you, practice slowly and cleanly with high articulation. Feel free to play with different fingerings and string voicings. A metronome will come in very handy!

You can see plainly that I've messed with Segovia's work. This is what works for me; it doesn't mean that's the way you have to perform the passage. Find a copy of the violin score and note the legato markings. You know, whenever you learn a piece transcribed from another instrument's repertoire, go back tot he original score and check it out. You may see something that the transcriber missed.
