I am delighted to be able to launch the new 2020 online digital edition of the New Complete Works of Mauro Giuliani. All the items in this new series are authentic, authoritative, usually re-engraved, and urtext. They give the context of each piece and where helpful or necessary they give a score which the original editions usually did not, they only provided parts.
This new Giuliani edition is dynamic and ongoing and more works by Giuliani are planned to be added.
Here is the list of the titles now available in this new digital series of the New Complete Works of Giuliani.

Mauro Giuliani, guitar virtuoso, heir to the lutenists of old, friend of Beethoven and Rossini, composed concerti, chamber music, and songs, as well as guitar solos and duets. A Dutchman who heard him in 1808 when he had first arrived in Vienna from Italy, had a perceptive insight into the nature of Giuliani’s work. He wrote: “Then I heard a guitarist who played so perfectly that he often reminded me of the fine old time of true lute playing”….To learn more about Giuliani, go to Giuliani: life and music.
