Raffaele Carpino, performer, researcher and historiographer of guitar, already protagonist of the rediscovery of unpublished music by Carulli and Legnani (see Tactus's TC770302 and TC791201), offers us in this new work a taste of one of the most significant composers as far as it concerns the nineteenth-century composition for guitar: the virtuoso Mauro Giuliani.The period in which the six guitar works presented on this CD were published includes that of Giulianiís fortunate stay in Vienna, for opuses 49, 62 and 72, that of his stay in Rome, for op.109, and that of his stay in Naples, for the reduction of the Sinfonia from the opera La Cenerentola. Variazioni, the last work on this CD, was published posthumously. All the pieces have been recorded on the basis of the first editions printed in the nineteenth century, faithfully following all the originally indicated reprises. The instrumental form that prevails on this CD is the theme with variations, which is present in four out of six pieces, i.e. opuses 49, 62, 72 and the posthumously published Variazioni.
