The complete Scarlatti and Cabezón Keyboard Collections in Audio
The C@BEZÓN500 Collection was organised by FIMTE in 2010 to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the birth of the famous blind Spanish musician Antonio de Cabezón (1510-2010). This is the result of a joint effort by professional musicians, record labels, music students and amateur musicians who came together to make all of Cabezón's works available online over the course of this fifth centennial year. Over 60 performers from twelve different countries took part. LISTEN NOW!
In response to many requests from music colleges, universities and other musical education institutions, the First Global Scarlatti Marathon organised by FIMTE will once again be available in the next weeks. In December 2006, FIMTE initiated the First Global Scarlatti marathon over 24 hours, involving 220 performers from 14 institutions in 11 cities in seven countries. The First Global Scarlatti Marathon had a huge impact in both the media and the musical world, being the first of its type. We are pleased to be able to offer these historic archives once again in the near future.

LISTEN NOW to the international online tribute C@BEZÓN500 to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the birth of the famous blind Spanish musician Antonio de Cabezón (1510-2010). This is the result of a joint effort by professional musicians, record labels, music students and amateur musicians who have got together to make all of Cabezón's works available online over the course of this fifth centennial year.
Over 60 performers from twelve different countries have taken part, playing on instruments such as the harpsichord, clavichord, virginal, organ, regal, piano, viola da gamba and harp, as well as various instrumental ensembles.
It is interesting to note that the "top ten" are Cabezón's diferencias or variations: The diferencias, together with the so-called Pavana con su glosa (Pavane and variations) are the works which have most often been recorded and performed in public and, of course, for which we have received the largest number of versions and proposals for C@bezon500. This is why we have selected and included several versions of these pieces in C@BEZÓN500, making it possible to compare different performances on different instruments.
C@BEZÓN500 is divided into three main sections, each based on one volume of his works, which are: Obras de Música para Tecla, Arpa y Vihuela (ed. Hernando de Cabezón) (Pieces for keyboard, harp and vihuela), Libro de Cifra Nueva para Tecla, harpa y Vihuela (ed. Venegas de Henestrosa) (New figured music for keyboard, harp and vihuela) and the Coimbra Manuscript MM 242.
We have followed the order and index of the original Venegas and Hernando de Cabezón editions. In addition, to make it easier to find each piece, we have kept the numbering system from the modern Anglés edition, except in the case of the Obras de Música, where the numbering only matches up to 68, since Anglés decided not to publish the variations (glosados) which immediately followed.
Much of the Cabezón's music is based on polyphonic songs. At http://www2.cpdl.org you can find several of the original tunes which Cabezón used for his variations. Also, the Biblioteca Digital Hispánica has made available the original figured edition of the Obras de Música para Tecla, Arpa y Vihuela : http:// bibliotecadigitalhispanica. bne.es:80/webclient/ DeliveryManager?application= DIGITOOL-3&owner= resourcediscovery&custom_att_ 2=simple_viewer&pid=202212
