About This Lesson

Gabriel Bianco walks through the first piece Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco ever wrote for the guitar: Variations Through the Centuries. Bianco begins by giving the background and discussing the overall character of the piece.

The lesson continues with musical demonstrations and in depth discussions of each movement. Some of the primary topics include dynamic phrasing, separating the melody and accompaniment voices, finding expressive fingerings, and reflecting the proper character in one’s interpretation.
