Giulio Regondi Concert Works for Guitar 48 pages facsimile edition $29.95
I first played these pieces in 1980, if there is a set of efervescent 19th century works it these 5 pieces. Very modern in sound, yet in form, as one expects. The bass line of the tremolo in the Reverie Op. 19 rivals, the best of Agustin Barrios' pieces two generations later. Giulio Regondi was a child prodigy in Europe in 1830 when all royalty of whatever nation-state knew who he was at the age of nine. In 1831 Fernando Sor dedicated his Op. 46 "Souvenir d'Amitié Fantasia" to Giulio Regondi. David Russell has recorded some of these, and David Starobin as well. It was the late virtuoso Leif Christensen who introduced my ears to the wonderous sounds, as he played a Lacote and a Panormo on the LP that was released c. 1980.
