Mauro Giuliani: 12 Ecossaises op. 33 are among the first easy pieces which Giuliani published in Vienna after he arrived there in about 1806.
They are mostly easy in that there are many open bass strings, A, E, D.
This set is one of five sets of dances by Giuliani which I published with Tecla Editions in 2006 in a printed book entitled Dances of 1810.
At the end of this file, after the music, you can read the full preface to that book which will cast more light on the circumstances of this music.
