• Tudor-Niculescu-Mizil guitar

This book is based on the doctoral thesis entitled „Stylistic landamarks in the guitar creation of the composer Mauro Giuliani”. The work is addressed to all those who want to deepen the compositional style of a musical personality that through talent, work, dedication and boldness has left posterity a special spiritual heritage when the guitar was in the early stages of its statue as a concert instrument. The volume has 219 pages.

Tudor Niculescu-Mizil will have studied guitar archives that Giuliani conceived in order to achieve the optimal technical level, thus artistic, starting from the principles of fingering and reaching the multitude of sounding procedures of the elements of compositional and interpretative language. But not only he has studied, he also gives us examples of several pages commented that could constitute…a future manual of good rules for initiation in guitar art, from Giuliani…to today’ s mentors, devoted to the disciples who perpetuate the fascination of the harmonic, rhythmic, melodic resonances of the guitar. Prof. univ. dr. Șerban-Dimitrie Soreanu

The creation of Mauro Giuliani, a representative figure of the nineteenth-century guitar, has a considerable impact, both from a pedagogical point of view and from the perspective of its presence in concert repertoires. The book „Technical and interpretative hypostasis in the creation of composer Mauro Giuliani” is richly documented, clearly structured, presented in a frank and elegant language. The author manages to achieve his intended purpose, the work proving to be a true guide for the interpretation of Mauro Giuliani’ s music. Conf. univ. dr. Cătălin Ștefănescu-Pătrașcu

The volume is in Romanian language.

This work is composed of ten carols selected from both Romania and international repertoires. Through the proposed classical guitar arrangements, it was intended to preserve the authenticity of the selected songs, as well as to enrich them through various choices of harmonic thinking. The difficulty of songs is one that encourages interpreters to read the scores and to discover the beauty of these Christmas songs. The level of the pieces is beginner to intermediate, suitable for both amateur guitarists and professionals of all ages.

This collection is a novelty in the landscape of classical guitar publications in Romania. The author harmonized in an elegant and inspired style ten traditional Christmas songs. I am glad to notice that besides the vocation of soloist and professor, Tudor Niculescu-Mizil is also manifesting himself in the direction of enriching the repertoire for classical guitar, through attractive arrangements dedicated to the lovers of this instrument.
