Mauro Giuliani’s Variations for flute or violin and guitar, op. 84, are 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.
The guitar shines in variations 2, 4, and especially in variation 6 which brings the set to a brilliant ending. Thomas F. Heck suggested that this may be the work that Giuliani and his colleague the violinist Mayseder played in Vienna on 18 May 1817, and that may well be correct.
