Bradford Werner plays Tombeau by Weiss

Here I am playing Tombeau sur la Mort de M. Comte d’Logy arrivée 1721 (London Manuscript) by Sylvius Leopold Weiss (1687–1750). One of the most important Baroque lutenists and composers and a direct contemporary of Bach, we are very lucky to have the music Weiss. The Tombeau sur la Mort de M. Comte d’Logy is one his finest works and very popular arrangement for guitar. Weiss used a symbol for ornaments that allows for numerous interpretations. I’ve added the most likely appoggiaturas and removed impractical ornaments for a modern guitar edition. Although I’ve added editorial ornaments I keep true to the original as much as possible.
