About Mauro Giuliani

Mauro Giuliani (1781-1829) was an Italian composer and guitarist of the late Classical and early Romantic periods who was associated the Viennese circle of Diabelli, Moscheles, and Hummel. Giuliani taught himself to play the guitar and made it his principal instrument. A tour brought him success across Europe and drew the attention of Beethoven. Giuliani is best remembered for his three guitar concertos, numerous guitar duets and solo pieces, and works for guitar paired with flute or violin. Giuliani also introduced a notation system that clarified the use of multiple lines on the treble staff.
