Se io m'accorgo ben mio d'un altro amante - Basic Membership
This enchanting Italian renaissance guitar piece has withstood the test of time and survived for probably more than 400 years enabling us to enjoy its beauty and charm today. Although the original composer's name is unknown we can attribute this beautiful piece to the Oscar Chilesotti collection of Six lute pieces of the Renaissance. I actually played this complete set as part of my first year university recital at Victoria University in New Zealand.
Here are the names of all six pieces in the suite:
- Vaghe belleze et bionde treccie d'oro vedi che per ti moro
- Bianco fiore
- Se io m'accorgo ben mio d'un altro amante
- Try using the side of the right-hand thumb for a very warm full sound
- Contrast this with a brittle ponticello sound the second time through
- For additional variation the use of staccato makes a nice contrast in the B section during the repeat
