Mauro Giuliani’s Complete Works, Volume 25 (Tecla facsimile edition) contains Giuliani’s guitar concerto op. 30 in A, in the version for guitar and full orchestra (parts only, no score). With an introduction by Brian Jeffery. 80 pages. First published by Tecla in 1985. Reprinted 2002.
Please note that this is a facsimile of the original early nineteenth century parts and that they are sometimes hard to read. Please also note that in this reprint all the parts are bound into one volume (not separate pieces of paper as was the case in the original printing). It is allowable to make copies, for purposes of performance only.
Paperbound TECLA 0825.
Clothbound in black and gold TECLA 0925. The clothbound copies of this title unfortunately have dampmarks (not too bad but they are there). However, one person who bought one of these clothbound copies wrote that the clothbound stand up better on the music stand and that that was more important to him than to worry about a few marks.
The three volumes for this concerto op. 30 in A in this Tecla series are:
- This Volume 25: the version for guitar and full orchestra, in A. The guitar is a normal guitar (not a terz guitar).
- Volume 26: the version for guitar and string quartet, in A (same guitar part as in Volume 25).
- Volume 27: the arrangement of the concerto which Diabelli made for terz guitar and piano. The guitar part here is a terz guitar so although it is written in A it actually sounds in C and the piano part is in C. Note that this volume 27 is not a piano reduction of the concerto: rather, it is a new arrangement made by Diabelli.
All are in facsimiles of the first editions, parts only, no score.
Giuliani composed three concertos for guitar, opus numbers 30, 36, and 70. This concerto op. 30 in A is the first and most famous of them.
Legibility: rather faint in places.
