The guitar in Italy: From classicism <br> to the 20th century

(1 April 2019) On April 5 at 18:30 in the Umberto Agnelli Auditorium at the Italian Cultural Institute in Tokyo will be a concert by guitarists Marco Musso and Davide Giovanni Tomasi, "The guitar in Italy: From Classicism to the Twentieth Century". The programme wishes to pay tribute to the history of the classical guitar in Italy. Starting from the music of Mauro Giuliani, a famous virtuoso in the early nineteenth century Vienna and a classical style composer, to the carefree romanticism of Giulio Regondi; a child prodigy who played alongside Franz Liszt, we have reached one of the most significant works of the twentieth century guitar repertoire, “Les guitares bien tempérées op. 199" by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco: 24 preludes and escapes explicitly inspired by thev “Well-Tempered Clavier” by Johann Sebastian Bach.
