Silvius Leopold Weiss:

Stylistic characteristics of his music and the problem of the

new edition of Lute tablatures


This lecture deals with the problem of transcribing lute works to the modern six- and eleven-string guitar in a stylistically faithful manner on the basis of Leopold Silvius Weiss' compositions.
Various editions as well as the original manuscript will be consulted.

The lecture illustrates unavoidable musical discrepancies in the transcriptions of Silvius Leopold Weiss. Whoever arranges a lute piece for modern guitar faces various challenges in order to do justice to the musical intention of the piece.

History of String Manufacturing


Nine generations of string manufacturing expertise are built on ambition, drive for reaching perfection, perseverance and innovation, all wrapped around the passion and love for music and the classical guitar.

More than three hundred years ago the D´Addario family started making strings in the Abbruzzo mountains of Italy. Centuries of development, challenges, technology and research played their role in establishing D´Addario as the leading brand in manufacturing of strings and accessories they are today. 

The best materials, the process, the history and tips for choosing the right strings and accessories for your guitar – you can hear them all in the presentation D´Addario – A History of String Manufacturing.
