MAURO GIULIANI - SONATA IN C MAJOR, Op. 15
Arranged for 2 Guitars
Mauro Giuliani, who was born in Italy in 1781, moved to Vienna in about 1806, where he quickly became known as a leading virtuoso guitarist. Friends with such luminaries as Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn and Schubert, he established himself as a respected and admired composer as well. His Sonata in C Major, Opus 15, was first published in 1808. It is his only work in classical sonata form and has long been considered to be one of his finest masterpieces. This arrangement for two guitars is an excellent piece for concert programs. It is engraved in a format that guitar teachers may wish to use to introduce the music to their students, as well as for study of classical sonata form.
