Mauro Giuliani’s Gran Pot-Pourri for flute or violin and guitar, op. 126, 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 potpourri uses themes from Rossini, Donizetti, and an Italian popular song. It was first published in Milan in 1827. There are separate parts for the flute and for the violin. The flute and violin parts are in C, that is three semitones higher than the guitar which is in A major, so that to play this work the guitar should either be a terz guitar or have a capotasto at the third fret.
It includes: Introduzione maestoso, Theme and variations on a theme from Rossini’s Zelmira, Andante from Rossini’s Semiramide, Allegro sostenuto from a Neapolitan song “Managgia pallece”, and Theme maestoso from Donizetti’s Alfredo il Grande.
