Canarios is a movement taken from the Suite Espanola for guitar by Gaspar Sanz, a leading composer of Spanish Baroque music.? Deborah Baker Monday presents this delightful arrangement in D major which engages all sections of the ensemble in the interplay between 6/8 and 3/4.? The rich and resonant texture makes this piece a great concert or festival selection.

Gaspar Sanz lived from ca.16401710. He was a leading composer of music from the Baroque period in Spain, but it is his guitar music which has given him the most attention. He wrote three collections of pieces as an Instruction for guitar and they include about 90 pieces which are part of the guitar repertory.

The Suite Espanola has become popular as a performance piece in the modern guitar world. It contains numerous movements of which "Canarios" is one of the most popular. Many guitar concerts include a selection of these wonderful dance movements:

1 Espanoletas

  1. Gallarda y villano
  2. Danza de las hachas
  3. Rujero y paradetas
  4. Zarabanda al ayre espanol
  5. Passacalle de la cavalleria de Napoles
  6. Folias
  7. La Minona de Cataluna
  8. Canarios
"Canarios" is written in 6/8 and explores the unique relation to 3/4 and how the accents can be manipulated so cleverly. It is a brilliant piece which can enrich your classroom with many teaching points.
