Below is the current state of my research on the works for guitar by Luigi Castellacci (1797-1845). It is still very rough with a number of duplicated opus numbers. Any rows without a library location have been found via printed references either in journals, newspapers or publishers’ lists. Any rows with only opus numbers have not been found or perhaps might be music for harp which I have not researched yet.
If you can add to this list please let me know.
