The studies of Mauro Giuliani (1781-1829) stand alongside those of Fernando Sor, Matteo Carcassi, Dionisio Aguado and Ferinando Carulli as the staples of the didactic pieces by the "first generation" of classical guitarists. Giuliani was one of the most celebrated guitarists of his age, a brilliant performer and prolific composer. He left a legacy of compositions, and many of his works are heard regularly in recitals and concerts today. His student pieces are considered indispensable by generations of guitarists. The studies and exercises contained in the six opus numbers here provide some of the most effective material in the entire guitar literature for building and refining a superior technical command of the guitar. In this edition, David Grimes has modernized some of the notation and corrected a number of misprints from Giuliani's original publications. Overall Difficulty:  Multiple Levels. Pages: 168.

$10.50 - Book 97379
Check Out Now
Giuliani's Six Preludes were composed while he was in Vienna, around 1816, or 17; he had left the city by 1819 and the work's dedicatee Joseph Stieler is probably the portrait painter of this name who lived in Vienna between 1816 and 1820. Although the preludes are primarily intended to develop right hand technique, arpeggio playing in particular, they are also musically interesting. Valuable as student exam or concert pieces, they may also be effectively used on a professional level. Overall Difficulty:  Intermediate.   Pages: 16.
