At the beginning of the 19th century, music at home was in full blossom and the guitar a very popular instrument. Contrary to the short, zither-like note of early pianos, the guitar had a singing, resonant sound. Thus, many chamber works with guitar originated in this era. Grand Duo concertant had already been published at Zimmermann Leipzig in a reduced and abridged version by Heinrich Albert. The editors of this issue now offer a complete and carefully revised edition of Giulianis op. 85 based on the original print.
