Dionisio Aguado (1784-1849)


Here are the Aguado items available from this Tecla website in printed or digital:

New Guitar Method, translated into English.

Variations on the fandango, op. 16, which can be stunning in an enthusiastic performance.

Dionisio Aguado was one of the classic composers for the guitar in the nineteenth century. Born in Spain, he later lived for many years in Paris. He is best known today for his New Guitar Method, but he also composed many other pieces, for example his Fandango, op. 16.
