Divertimento per Flauto, Violoncello e Chitarra

The source is the autograph of parts, Sapienza Università di Roma, Dipartimento di Lettere e Culture moderne, Sezione di Storia della Musica, RMS2679477. Title page: “Divertimento per flauto, violoncello e chitarra / composto e dedicato al nobile Sig. Carlo Pizzini da Gius. De Pauli.”. The manuscript also includes a violin part, by a different hand, which was used as an alternative to the cello and which has not been transcribed. I have published this nineteenth- century piece in remembrance of my brother-in-law Antonio de Pizzini, the last descendant of an ancient family, who gave me a collection of about 140 manuscripts and music prints used by the musicians of the family, mainly by the excellent flautist Carlo de Pizzini (1812-1883). Giuseppe De Pauli, flutist of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Verona, was Carlo's teacher for decades starting from 1827. The collection was donated by me to the Biblioteca di Storia della Musica of the Università Sapienza di Roma.
