This is the second volume of a project carried out by Andrea Vezzoli at my request, which was to write short pieces for the educational use of guitar students to illustrate techniques of composition rarely or never encountered in the original repertoire. The reason for this gap in the guitar repertoire is simple. Regarding the first collection, the musical language used was ​​developed when the guitar of today simply did not exist, while regarding the present collection, it deals with characteristics of writing related to composers who have never (or almost never) written for the guitar.
As in the case of the previous collection, also on this occasion I did not ask Vezzoli to write exactly “in the style of …” but rather to “encounter”, as a composer, some musical languages ​​used by other writers, languages which have now earned undoubted fame in the historical path of European cultured music.
Vezzoli also provided me with some useful elements to illustrate the techniques he used in the composition of the pieces published here.
They are arranged here not in order of instrumental difficulty, but rather in “historical” order (as regards the reference to composers and musical techniques). (P. Bonaguri)
