Musique pour guitare à l'usage de Mlle Caroline de Giverville


Scope and Contents

4to. 80 pp. Half green vellum over blue marbled boards. 19th century autograph manuscript in an unknown hand, containing 28 "airs avec accompagnement de guitare" dedicated to Mademoiselle Caroline de Giverville by the composer. Bound together with a further "Recueil de differents Morceaux pour Guitare" by Carulli "a l'usage de Mademoiselle Caroline de Giverville" being 10 additional short works for guitar alone.

Only the 9 songs of Opus 3a and Opus 4a are listed as voice + guitar in the Carulli catalogue and Giverville is not listed in the index of dedicatees. The present manuscript appears to be an unknown source including numerous original compositions by the father of modern guitar, apparently composed for and dedicated to a student in Paris.
