Thomas F. Heck Mauro Giuliani: Virtuoso Guitarist and Composer. The recognition and renown that the name Mauro Giuliani (1781-1829) has enjoyed in the latter twentieth century, thanks largely to the live and recorded performances of his music, is certainly very gratifying to those who have worked to facilitate the rediscovery of this pivotal guitarist/composer. Clearly it is now time to revisit the life and works of Giuliani in the hope of reviewing and acknowledging in one convenient and well-indexed book the old and the new, the false and the true. Readers familiar with the author’s quarter-century-old dissertation will, on reading the present text, readily appreciate the manifold ways in which the wait was worth it. Contains many illustrations, photographs, musical examples, bibliography, a full Appendix of foreign language quotations, subject and name indexes and more. Paper back. 304 pp. Press Reviews. $44.95
