Detailed list of contents of Volumes 19-24, the complete guitar duets

More about Giuliani's guitar duets

Volume 19
The book contains six sets of Lšndler, in reprints of the first editions. In opp. 16a and 55 two normal guitars are used.  In opp. 75, 80, 92 and 94, the first guitar is a terz guitar and the second guitar is a normal guitar.

Volume 20
Contains the following four works for two guitars, in reprints of the first editions:

  • Rondeau alla Polacca (arranged from the last movement of the Concerto op. 30). For one terz guitar and one normal guitar.
  • Op. 35: Gran Variazioni Concertanti (a dramatic and eloquent work. Because the two early editions are different in many details, both of them are given here: one from Vienna from 1812, and the other from Milan, about 1830). For two normal guitars.
  • Op. 66: Three rondos. For one terz guitar and one normal guitar.
  • Op. 67: Gran Potpourri (an interesting work, based on several themes including a familiar one from Beethoven. Well worth performing). For one terz guitar and one normal guitar.


Volume 21
Contains the following three works for guitar duet, in reprints of the first editions:

  • Op. 69: La Lira Notturna (a collection of twenty pieces). For one terz guitar and one normal guitar. 
  • Polonaise (arranged from the third movement of the Concerto op. 70). For one terz guitar and one normal guitar.
  • Op. 116: Le Avventure di Amore (ten waltzes bearing the names of episodes in a love affair: L'Invito al ballo, L'Affetto, etc.). For two normal guitars.


Volume 22
Contains the following four works for guitar duet, in reprints of the first editions:

  • Op. 130: Variazioni Concertanti (like op. 35, with which it has resemblances, this is a dramatic and eloquent work). For two normal guitars.
  • Op. 137: Tre Polonesi Concertanti (three very lively pieces, well worth performing). For two normal guitars.
  • Auswahl der beliebtesten Deutschen vom Apollo Saal [no opus number] (German dances from a Vienna dance hall). For two normal guitars.

  • Overture to Spontini's La Vestale (for two normal guitars)
  • Overture to Mozart's La Clemenza di Tito (for one terz guitar and one normal guitar)
  • Overture to Bellini's Il Pirata (for two normal guitars)


Volume 24
Contains the following four overtures by Rossini arranged by Giuliani for two guitars.  This volume is particularly recommended to duet players: fine sparkling music.  All four are for two normal guitars (not terz guitar).

  • Overture to Elisabetta [better known as the overture to Il Barbiere di Siviglia]
  • Overture to La Cenerentola
  • Overture to L'Assedio di Corinto
