Three movements from the master’s youthful
Capriccio on the Departure of his Beloved Brother,
arranged for guitar.
“This three-piece group of exquisite music is well transcribed by Jared Walker. It works very well on the guitar technically, retaining its depth, scope, and grandeur, and seems to have none of that ‘tortured to fit’ feeling present in many transcriptions. The problems of voicing are solved very cleverly, and the player is never in doubt as to the intentions of the arranger or composer.”

Ernesto Nazareth: Brazilian Tangos, arranged for guitar Mel Bay Publications, St. Louis 2004; 24 pp. $7.95
Three of Nazareth’s most famous pieces in straightforward arrangements; tablature and standard notation.
“Newman has arranged these pieces with admirable efficiency. The lilting basslines of Brejeiro are captured perfectly and the famous descending chord progressions of Odeon are well fingered and lose none of the essence of the piano original. Remando’s spry yet questioning theme works in a delightful way.” – Tim Panting, CLASSICAL GUITAR magazine
These arrangements of Chopin and Brahms piano works are for two guitars. The editions include separate scores for each part. $10.95
