Do you know Esteban Daza?
My transcription of the 22 vihuela fantasias from Esteban Daza – in a version for guitarists – is finished. I intend to publish them soon. This composer remains almost unknown until today, especially in the guitarist’s repertory. His motett composing style, introducing mostly 4 themes in around 80 bars and developing every single of them in a polyphonic manner, is a good ear training and gives pleasure at the same time. Some of them are masterpieces and recommendable for playing in concert.
In addition I did a characterization and an analysis of the fantasies (in german language), proving the use of authentic and plagal modi as it was typical in the 15/16th century. The essay also contains some aspects about life and lifetime of Esteban Daza, which for I want to give special thanks to John Griffith and his huge research material.
