Duo Concertant Op.25 by Mauro Giuliani (1781-1829). Edited by Hoh / Lessing. For Violin, Guitar. Sheet Music. Published by Zimmermann (PE.ZM32640).
At the beginning of the 19th century, music at home was in full blossom and the guitar a very popular instrument. Contrary to the short, zither-like note of early pianos, the guitar had a singing, resonant sound. Thus, many chamber works with guitar originated in this era. Grand Duo concertant had already been published at Zimmermann Leipzig in a reduced and abridged version by Heinrich Albert. The editors of this issue now offer a complete and carefully revised edition of Giuliani's op. 25 based on the original print (cf. the version for flute and piano published by Zimmermann with the number ZM 25950).
