Easiest Giuliani concert

Post by Claudiosolares » Sun Nov 26, 2017 8:46 pm

Hi friends,I have about four months for memorizing any Giuliani concerto.
Hope you can suggest if there is any that is particularly easier than the rest. (for me, not for the ensemble)
Or, one that has shorter soloist parts; the ones I've seen on youtube have lengthy ensemble stuffing so it's hard to guess total soloist playing time.

Well there are two realistic choices; numbers 1 and 2. Number 3 is for terz guitar, and its possible if you tune higher and use a capo but that's lots of extra work. So if you go to imslp (dot) org and look for Giuliani you will find both 1 op 30 and 2 op 36 free to download, at least to give you an idea. Plus go to youtube and there are performances of both.

One might add that as well as considering length and technical standard, go for the one that speaks to you. No matter what, you will spend many hours with it and it would be better if its a piece you really love.

Number 2 op 36 gets extremely rarely played. Maybe there's a reason for that.
