Week 3: Italy in 19th !
Welcome to the Main Thread for the second week of the "Around the 19th Century Guitar World" challenge!
Italy was the birthplace of many great classical guitar virtuosos, although many of them found success outside of the Italian peninsula. Paganini was arguably one of the greatest violinists of all time, but was also a very talented guitarist and performed regularly with Legnani. Regondi, technically from Switzerland, followed in the Italian style of composition and was also a gifted multi-instrumentalist.

Giuliani Op.113 Fughetta 1st half - very rough
I find this Fughetta by Giuliani to be a very nice Romantic Fugue (well, fughetta as the title says). I intended to post it during the Vienna week which was more appropriate. However, I grossly miscalculated how difficult it is for me. This is my best (?) take of the first half of this piece. I hope to have it by the end of the challenge.
Next week? Oh wow! Not sure, maybe?
Giuliani op. 113 Fughetta
I have no business posting this but it is the best of many attempts to record it. There are several segments that continually give me a hard time. It begins reasonably well but the last section sort of falls apart. There are not many moments of repose so when I stumble it is a real scramble to regain my footing (so to speak). I will continue to work on it and maybe post updates (assuming they are an improvement) in the practice diary.
