Synopsis

Album Description
The original repertoire for mandolin and guitar dating from the early 1800s is rather scant but quite precious. Of those composers who wrote for these forces, the name of Niccolò Paganini certainly stands out, but others such as Ferdinando Carulli, Filippo Gragnani , and Bartolomeo Bortolazzi also enjoyed a certain notoriety during the course of their artistic careers. Alongside this specific repertoire, there undoubtedly existed another which would have been "borrowed," so to speak, from ensembles consisting of guitar and a soprano instrument. But which mandolin and guitar are we talking about? There is some confusion surrounding the term "mandolino" among even the most expert scholars and musicians. The situation was already complicated in the 18th century because of the different types of instruments in use.
