Suite Nr. 1

(Giovanni Battista Marella)

After a long time (Guitar Duo DOS Amigos has been dead for five years now) a guitar duo contribution, this time the Suite Nr. 1 by Giovanni Battista Marella. There is little known about his life, at least Internet is quite silent about him, he appeared to have lived around the 1800s. He left a few works, amongst others this suite, that I heard performed by the famous Presti-Lagoya duo.

The Suite has the movements Andante, Menuet I, Menuet II, Rondo and Gigue. Part 1 (I guess it was the part played by Ida Presti) is the most challenging.
