Mauro Giuliani – The overture to Rossini’s La gazza ladra, as a digital download (pdf)


This is a digital download.

Mauro Giuliani’s arrangement for two guitars of this world-famous overture by Rossini is full of verve and works very well in this form. This brand-new edition of 2020 edited by me is re-engraved and gives score and parts. You can hear it performed by Claudio Maccari and Paolo Pugliese on Youtube here:




I published this work in 1986 in volume 24 of my series of Giuliani’s Complete Works, but that was in facsimile and it reproduced the original edition which was only in parts, not in score. Now this new edition gives score and parts and is re-engraved.

You can see the first few bars at FIRST PART FREE.

Companion to this work: Giuliani’s arrangement for two guitars of the overture to Rossini’s Barber of Seville.
