Who wrote that ?

Maybe Manuel Ponce thought people would like his music more if they thought it was composed some 200 years before by another famous, and long dead composer.
Maybe the scam was for other reasons or maybe just a little bit of fun at the expense of the music public.

We will never really know why he attributed this piece to A Scarlotti (1685-1757).

Whatever “maybe” it was, we know that Manuel Ponce (1882-1948) was a great composer of works for guitar and piano as well as other instruments and that the piece “Gavotte” is captivating.

This is a piece for advanced students but anyone around grade 2 standard can start work on the piece. If you want to add this to your repertoire let me know next time we catch up.

Cheers
Leigh
