Mauro Giuliani’s Gran Duetto Concertante for flute or violin and guitar, op. 52, is here presented in a new modern re-engraved edition, score and parts, ready for performance, urtext and authentic, based strictly on the original editions with no modern elements or fingering introduced.
This Gran Duetto Concertante is an extended work in three movements, well written for both instruments. It was first published in Vienna in about 1814. Thomas F. Heck has written: “This piece may have been conceived as entertainment for the delegates to the Congress of Vienna (Sept. 1814-June 1815). It caters to the military esprit of the times with the third movement, a large and vigorous Rondo Militare”.
There are three movements: Andante sostenuto, Minuet and trio, and Rondo militare allegretto.
