Rossini: Semiramide (Arranged for Solo Guitar by Mauro Giuliani) / Izhar Elias

Album Summary

>Rossini, Gioachino : Semiramide, opera
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Rossini's opera seria 'Semiramide' of 1822 is one of his most famous works, and like many other hits of the period was subject to various arrangements for piano, barrel organ, and in this case guitar. Many such arrangements were not sanctioned by the composer or publisher (there being no effective copyright laws at the time), but some were approved as in the case of the Giuliani arrangements now receiving their premiere recording on Brilliant Classics. Mauro Giuliani was possibly the greatest guitar virtuoso of the period. Born in Italy, he studied cello and counterpoint, but took up the guitar as his main instrument and became the first guitarist/composer to compose seriously for the instrument.
