There is a nice video of Nicoletta Confalone’s presentation on Emilia Giuliani at the “Musica con la chitarra, oggi” in Bologna, February 2014. There is also a great overview of her work on Emilia on the same site.
The Emilia Giuliani book is finally done! She was the daughter of Mauro Giuliani. Very little information about her has been available and only a few of her compositions have had much attention since their original publication in the 1830-40’s. In the 200th anniversary year of her birth I’m proud to release this book with tremendous work and support from Nicoletta Confalone and Thomas Heck.
The works list below represents my latest work on the works of Felix Horetzky (Feliks Horecki) (1796-1870). Please see my other article on Horetzky which has more biographical information on him. Horetzky republished the same composition with multiple publishers often tracing his movements from Vienna to Paris and then on to London. I have denoted these publications with letters after the opus numbers.(more…)
This is an incomplete list of compositions in the Morishige Takei collection at the Kunitachi College of Music in Tokyo, Japan. It was compiled by Jun Sugawara, of HOMAdream. The Takei collection is not publicly accessibly to my knowledge, nor has it been fully catalogued. After Takei’s death it was in the custody of at least one other person during which time portions may have been mixed with other collections. Takei also had a large amount of mandolin music in his possession. I doubt that this list represents the total of his guitar collection. One thing to remember though is that Takei lost nearly all of his collection due to fires caused by the great Kanto earthquake in 1923, though his rebuilt collection mostly survived other fires caused by air raids on Tokyo during World War II.
