Mauro Giuseppe Sergio Pantaleo Giuliani (27 July 1781 – 8 May 1829) was an Italian guitarist, cellist, singer, and composer. He has become one of the most influential guitarist composers of his era and is well known for his teachings as well. Below is an example of his musical style as played by Richard Savino. This is Sonatine, Op. 71, No. 3: IV. Finale; Allegro:
Now that you’ve heard some of his work, you might understand why someone would need to work on all types of right hand techniques to play Giuliani’s compositions (and the compositions of many others). For example, if you needed to build a house, you would need more than a hammer. You would need saws, wrenches, sockets, etc. Giuliani’s 120 Right Hand Studies for The Classical Guitar will give you the tools you need meet much of the demands of the Classical Guitar Repertoire.
