This arrangement is of the Lacrimosa movement from Mozart’s requiem. Mozart composed this during the last year of his life and was left incomplete. It was later completed by other composers based on fragments left by Mozart. For example, the Lacrimosa only contained the first eight measures of music.
For this arrangement I tried to keep the melody and harmonies the same as the orchestrated version but had to take certain liberties because of the limitations of the guitar.
In this video I decided to record a practice session for a 1/2 hour. The first half is the first movement from Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata (Piano Sonata No. 14) and the second half is the Lacrimosa movement from the Requiem by Mozart.
Both are fairly new arrangements that I have made. The moonlight sonata arrangement was made back in the fall and the Lacrimosa was made over the Christmas break. These are two of my favorite pieces.
I decided to keep the good, bad and ugly in this practice video. I hope you enjoy watching and listening!
