Six Baroque Sonatas for an Archlute or 10c Lute (Christofero Dalitio, 1998)

Despite the popularity of the archlute as a continuo instrument in the Baroque era, very little original solo music from that time has survived. Hence I have written under my italinized name six sonatas in a Baroque style somewhere between Zamboni and Weiss. The sonatas form a tonal cycle and consist of the following movements:

A first edition of these sonatas had been published 1998 by TREE Edition as a facsimile of my handwriting in Italian tablature. In 2013, I have made a second edition with small improvements and in French tablature, which is available form all-sheetmusic.com.
