In the early part of the 19th century, opera was all the rage. All the best tunes came from the opera stage. So when Fernando Sor and Mauro Giuliani each set out to do variations on a theme for solo guitar, they chose their favorite opera tunes. Sor picked a tune from Mozart's "Magic Flute" and Giuliani chose melodies from several Rossini operas. We hear these two pieces played by a young virtuoso guitarist from Montenegro, Goran Krivokapic.
