I know about a terzguitar and how its tuned 3 frets higher, but my question was how do you know this specific piece was composed for a guitar rather than a terzguitar? Did you have access to the original score?gizmo64 wrote:@BFG> Terzguitar is tuned one 3rd higher than usual CG and is a bit smaller and thinner.

In old sheets for terzguitar, there is always (or should be) written the fact it is for terzguitar. If there is any duo for terzguitar and -something-, the key in which TG is notated is three accidentals away from key in that -something-. For example: TG & piano - piano plays in A Major (three shaprs), TG in C Major (no sharps). If you want to play TG part on a CG, you have to put capo in 3rd position, or transcribe and transpose the part from C to A Major.

From my knowledge I thought his concertos were for terzguitars....gizmo64 wrote:This etude is excerpt from Giuliani's Concerto No. 2, op 36 for guitar and string orchestra. Surely, it is written for guitar with usual tuning. Many of etudes in op. 48 are excerpt from his concerts (No 1 in A op. 30, No 2 in A op. 36, No 3 in F op. 70, and piece in A op. 65 for CG & string quartet). A part of the sixth etude is also used in Giualini's Sonata Eroica op. 150. part of the second etude from op. 48 is used in Grand Duo for CG & piano, which is without opus number, but has double authorship - Giuliani and Ignaz Moscheles. I think the piece was composed during Giuliani's stay in Vienna (he was there since 1803), where he met also L. van Beethoven and J. N. Hummel.
