IIC Londra, The Golden Age of the Guitar: il 13 settembre Mauro Giuliani e Fernando Sor

Ingresso libero. Prenota qui.

From the dusk of the Ancien Régime the guitar becomes a formidable competitor of the violin and of the piano not only as accompaniment in songs, but also as lead part in chamber music and as soloist in concertos.
Especially in Italy and Spain some generations of extraordinary virtuosos explore through their compositions the potential of this new instrument, obtained thanks to a series of revolutionary technical innovations applied since the second half of the seventeenth century. The research on this potential goes on at least until the first decade of the nineteenth century and gives birth to an extensive, diverse, original repertoire for the guitar.
This cycle constitutes an attempt to show the remarkable role played by Italian composers in the development of guitar music between the 1790s and the 1850s.
