Johann Kaspar Mertz (Hungarian: János Gáspár Mertz, 1806 – 1856) was a Hungarian guitarist and composer.

 

 

The Bardenklänge (1847) are probably Mertz’s most important contribution to the guitar repertoire—a series of deceptively easy character pieces in the mould of Schumann. Tarantelle is no. 6 in this collection.

Moving free scores

From the beginning of 2014  I will move the free scores provided by Bergmann Edition to the Bergmann Edition Store. For me it has the advantage, that the work flow will be simpler. But more important there will be advantages for you – as user:

  • You can search and filter scores by composer, levels and flavor.
  • You can listen to the music using the audio player before you download.
  • You can see a preview of the beginning of each piece before you download.
  • You can be notified by e-mail when new editions of the pieces you have downloaded are updated.
  • You can comment and give star rating to the pieces.
  • You can subscribe to the newsletter, where all new published works will be listed (in bundles – I don’t want to spam you).

I will still maintain the old list: Bergmann edition scores

I hope you will like the new concept – and use it.

Why aren’t all the scores free

Unfortunately I will not be able to continue preparing all scores for free because the costs are becoming too high. I will keep prices low. Actually I have decided that one piece should cost the same as a cup of coffee at Starbucks (check the price).

Somehow, it seems fair that you credit my work by offering me a cup of coffee :-)

 

Carcassi opus 60 – Etude nr. 7

When I have had a longer break playing, and my right hand feels a bit rusty, I always play this study.  The mix of arpeggio and tremolo seems to have a good effect to loosen up my right hand.

You can get the scores for free in the store:

Fernando Sor: Etude nr. 3 from Opus 6

This etude from Fernando Sor’s Opus 6 is not played often. But it is a very good exercise for practicing slurs and pauses.
Choose between a CLEAN version without any fingering, an EDIT version with full fingering and a TAB version with tablature as well as a fingered version.

Sor: Etude nr. 2 from Opus 6

Klippebord-2

Time to publish this well known etude from Fernando Sor’s opus 6.

Three versions as usual:

Sor: Etude nr. 1 from Opus 6

Klippebord-1

Fernando Sor’s etude nr. one from his opus 6 is included in most collections of Sor studies – including Segovias collection, where it is published as Estudio nr. 4. The original can be found in several online libraries like the “imslp.org” collection. Direct link here…

There are no fingering in the original. I have reduced the use of barres compared to Segovias fingering to avoid too much left hand tension.

Free to download from the store:

Diferencias Sobre Guardame by Narvaez

Diferencias Sobre Guardame by Narvaez was one of the first pieces I published here at Bergmann Edition. Now it is time for a fresh version. My “house style” and notation practise have matured and I have worked out a new fingering which I like much better than the old version.

As usual you get more versions. As a BONUS, will you get versions for tablets/i-pads, computer screens and Kindles, when you download this piece from the store.
