Allegretto in A Minor, No.31, Op.50 by Mauro Giuliani (1781-1829) – PDF sheet music for classical guitar with a free video lesson and performance. This is from my PDF or hardcopy sheet music edition for classical guitar via Werner Guitar Editions: Le Papillon, No. 1-32, Op.50 by Mauro Giuliani. Grades 1-7 and includes both a notation-only edition and a tab edition.
Le Papillon (The Butterfly), Op.50 by Mauro Giuliani consists of 32 pieces published by Giuliani in Vienna in 1815. The works are presented progressively from easy to mid-intermediate depending on the tempo. Le Papillon is a beautiful set of works which are perfect for students, professionals playing gigs, or players looking for nice easy pieces to practice or perform.
I would place this study at approximately the grade 5 level depending on your tempo and due to the right hand fingering. Here’s the YouTube Link for this lesson if you want to watch it there.
Thanks, as always, Bradford.
Could you clarify, please, because I can’t quite work it out from your walk through…?
You’re muting the base on the “nice chromatic melody” (bars 13-14, and 17-18). But what about the arpeggiated bars following (15-16 and 19-21)? Did you let some of the base notes ring here? To my ear, the contrast works quite well like that.
I’m intending to mute through those sections, I relax it a bit at the cadence at measure 12 and 16 though. At least that was my intention!
