The Golden Age of the Guitar: a Tale of Two Cities

 

THE CYCLE

From the dusk of the Ancien Régime the guitar becomes a formidable competitor of the violin and of the piano not only as accompaniment in songs, but also as lead part in chamber music and as soloist in concertos.
Especially in Italy and Spain some generations of extraordinary virtuosos explore through their compositions the potential of this new instrument, obtained thanks to a series of revolutionary technical innovations applied since the second half of the seventeenth century. The research on this potential goes on at least until the first decade of the nineteenth century and gives birth to an extensive, diverse, original repertoire for the guitar.
This cycle constitutes an attempt to show the remarkable role played by Italian composers in the development of guitar music between the 1790s and the 1850s.

PART FIVE
A TALE OF TWO CITIES - PARIS & VIENNA

From the second half of the eighteenth century Paris and Vienna may be considered as the capitals of guitar music: each of these towns attracted the most brilliant guitar virtuosos and composers, who often came from Italy and Spain; it accommodated them for long periods, sometimes even for most of their lives; and - last, but not least - it contributed widely to shape their creativity by influencing them with its peculiar music style and taste.
This concert will sketch the notable role of Italian guitar composers in these two different, extraordinary, stimulating music environments.
