Andantino Grazioso, No.25, Op.50 by Giuliani

Andantino Grazioso in D Major, No.25, Op.50 by Mauro Giuliani (1781-1829) – Lesson, Performance, and Sheet Music. This is from my PDF or hardcopy sheet music edition for classical guitar: 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 7 level depending on your tempo. Here’s the YouTube Link for this lesson if you want to watch it there.

Unknowingly I play a C natural in the final chord in measure 23. The sheet music is correct as found in the original which has a C sharp. However, a D sharp diminished 7th chord with the C natural does seem to make sense so I’ll leave it to you to decide.

  1. Thanks, Bradford. Bar 23, last chord… Is the C sharp or natural? I think you played natural, and natural sounds right; but sharp is written.

    • Good catch/ear, the sheet music is correct and the original has the C sharp. However, a D sharp diminished 7th chord with a C natural does seem to make sense to me. Up to you which one you go with. I’ll have to think about it. Thanks!
