When I set myself to publish compositions for newcomers to the instrument, whether they be children or adults, I always try to blend two elements which I believe are essential. On the one hand, the aspect of “outer” pleasantness, with its melodic and rhythmic contents more or less dependent on the tastes of the public for whom it is intended, and on the other hand, the didactic value which I think the piece ought to have, meaning, compositions containing arpeggios, scales, chords, slurs, expressiveness and so on. Furthermore, in this collection my wish has been to include for the first time ten arrangements of famous pieces of repertoire (not just from the guitar repertoire), to testify the “path” of music, almost a tribute to our history. These are pieces we all know and which are certain to help the student link the modern to the traditional repertoire. I have tried to adhere to the sense of the original compositions by just adapting or only adding a guitar accompaniment according to the level of difficulty of the volume.
All that remains for me to do is to wish good luck to the students and colleagues who choose to select this new work of mine, hoping that it can further promote the study of this wonderful instrument of ours.

Born in 1962 in Cuneo, Giorgio Signorile began studying guitar at the local Conservatory, first with Pino Briasco and later with Paul Manzo, graduating in 1986 with honors. He subsequently worked with Betho Davezac and Leo Brouwer and started appearing as a soloist and in chamber music groups. During this period he was particularly dedicated to contemporary music performing with L'Assieme Chitarristico Italiano and recording two CDs on the Dynamic and l'Olandese Etcetera labels.
Inspired by his travels, he began composing for guitar. After a success at the composition competition "Suoni Nuovi 2007", he began collaborations with publishers such as Zedde, Sinfonica and especially Ut Orpheus creating music, both educational and professional in nature, for solo guitar and flute/guitar duo. His works have been performed in recent times by several well-known artists and ensembles - Giulio Tampalini (Strong emotions), Lucio Matarazzo (LM and friends) and Giorgio Mirto (Notturni).
His most recent CD ‘Reflessi’ (Reflections), produced by CNI Music in Rome, is a collection of works for solo guitar published in recent years by Ut Orpheus.
Since 2013 he has served as an official endorser for Aquila Corde Armoniche.
He considers teaching an important part of his work as a musician, a comparison between two realities, a dialogue where respect and knowledge are exchanged and interact, creating culture, risk, interest and mutual growth.
