Format: Paperback
Can't quite see the point of this book.
The arrangements are too difficult for beginners and too truncated for concert use.
Almost half of the book is wasted reprinting the same information in different languages and the performances on the CD are stiff and uninspiring.
Also including Sor Variations on a Theme by Mozart is a bit cheeky considering it's widespread availibilty

HASH(0x9d803924) out of 5 stars Challenging, and not impossible. 17 Nov. 2005
By Wade Outland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was looking for a place to find some of the melodies of Mozart arranged for guitar. I found just what I was looking for. Here are arrangements of some of my favorite Mozart that are accessible to the intermediate guitarist, namely me. The arrangements are presented in both musical notation and in tab form and there is an included CD containing performances of most of the arrangements. The arrangements are challenging but then that is what I was looking for, too. I might have picked a few different pieces for inclusion but overall I am quite satisfied with my purchase.

HASH(0x9d8065c4) out of 5 stars Not perfect, but maybe the collection of Mozart for solo guitar 9 April 2011
By Phil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You don't get to the first piece until page 64. Until then the book is taken up by a brief Mozart bio, an introduction to tablature and music notation, and a brief overview of right and left had technique as used in classical guitar - all provided in four languages. I suspect most buying this book will be beyond needing much of this information as these are not beginner pieces. The pieces are provided in both standard notation and tablature. I would prefer just standard notation, but needed to reference the tablature at times as no left hand fingerings or position markers are provided.

I would say most pieces are of an intermediate level, with the possible exception of the last two pieces which are variations themes by Mozart. Unfortunately these last two pieces are not included on the accompanying CD. The other selections in the book are pleasing short arrangements. At least some, such as the Sonata in C and Allegro from A Little Night Music, will be familiar to most.

Overall I gave the book four stars as there is not a lot of Mozart arrangements available for solo guitar, and I think the arrangements are generally good and accessible to classical or fingerstyle guitarists with some experience.
HASH(0x9d96be88) out of 5 stars Mozart for beginner guitarist 23 Mar. 2014
By roan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A nice collection of student-level tunes most only 2or 3 pages. A couple well- known themes and nice arrangements of sonata in c and minuets in f and g. The tab is distracting. The cd is good and it doesn't take long to learn to play a selection. Sor's variation on a theme of mozart is included with an arrangement different than Segovia's, but is not on the cd. It's not a mozart work, strictly speaking. This is as good as other mozart for guitar books and does have some interesting mozart facts. The Sor transcription is a nice addition. Overall, a beginner's book. The author would do well to choose a more challenging, longer mozart work and write an advanced book, like Yates' arrangement of the unaccompanied cello suites, which is perfect.

The notes are readable and the book is in new condition. The pieces are well written and valuable for performance and study.

HASH(0x9e4df6cc) out of 5 stars Not very mozartish arrangements 18 Mar. 2012
By deepest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mozart music is very passionate, very deep and purely beautiful, but these pieces seem to be arranged in a quite boring way. Of course, that is my personal(and my friend's, who is playing guitar too)opinion. It does have standard notation and tabs.
