The Source of Sagrini’s “Thême de Racio Calupo” op. 4

Published by Robert Coldwell on

Luigi Sagrini’s op. 4 was dedicated to Luigi Legnani and the theme was listed as “Racio Calupo.” This seemed odd for a well-known prodigy to dedicate a work to a famous guitarist yet use an obscure theme. Nothing related to “Racio Calupo” turned up in searches, so I began to suspect the name was wrong. After much effort, and help from other researchers, I believe I found the source for the theme. The source I located is obscure and unfortunately does not help explain the relationship between Sagrini and Legnani, who dedicated works to each other.
