Manuel Ponce and the Suite in A minor: Its Historical Significance and an Examination of Existing Editions

The collaboration between Manuel Ponce and Andres Segovia is one of the most important in the history of the guitar, lasting for more than twenty-five years. This relationship resulted in more than eighty works for solo guitar, including works attributed to other composers. The purpose of this study is to discuss the Suite in A minor, attributed to the German lutenist Silvius Leopold Weiss. This treatise will provide 1) historical background on the evolution of the piece, 2) its deception to performers and critics, and 3) comparisons of the six existing editions published with both Weiss and Ponce listed as the composer.
