Luigi Castellacci works

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.

Mitteilungen der Freien Vereinigung zur Förderung guter Guitaremusik (e. V.)

The journal “Mitteilungen der Freien Vereinigung zur Förderung guter Guitaremusik (e. V.)” (known in English as the “Free Society for the promotion of good guitar-music”) was one of the early, informative journals on the guitar published in Augsburg, Germany from 1904 to 1909. In January 1909 the Augsburg society joined with the Munich Gitarristischen Vereinigung and stopped publication of their own journal.
