Here is the first number of Giulianis Auswahl vom Apollo Saal (selection from the Apollo Ballroom), played by my guitar duo 'saitenspuren' - Edith Lehner & Norbert Neunzling. For our 19th century repertoire we use old guitars, Edith a Richard Jacob (Weißgerber) Biedermeier-Modell from 1922 and me a Wiener Modell by Karl Schandl from 1927.
The score for this music is available here in the archive.
The Apollosaal in Vienna was a great ballroom for 6000 people. Up to 3 orchestras (70 musicians each) played simultaneously in different rooms. Opened in 1808 it has the most success at around 1815, but soon lost its appeal. During the Cholera-outbreak 1831 it served as a hospital.
Mauro Giuliani lived in Vienna during its heyday and arranged in this collection the most favoured melodies of the Etablissement for two guitars.
