The Italian Mauro Giuliani (1781–1829) was an
accomplished guitarist, cellist, singer, and composer.
His first instrument was the cello which he continued
to play throughout his life, however after devoting
himself to the guitar he rapidly progressed and became
a skilled performer. In 1806 Giuliani moved to the
capital city of Austria, Vienna where he began
publishing compositions in the classical style in 1807.
He achieved much success touring throughout Europe and
his virtuosity and musical taste made him into a
musical celebrity. He later returned to Italy where he
ultimately found a modicum of success in Naples. He
often appeared in duo concert with his daughter Emilia
who was also a gifted guitarist.
