Digital guitar music archive

This project is dedicated to the creation of a digital archive of music for (and with) the guitar by Italian composers from various historical periods, in modern editions, reproduced, revised and digitized in .pdf format.
The purpose is to make more readily available a repertoire which is still little known and difficult to access, or available only in editions no longer in print, or in a printed form which often is far from practical as a performing edition. 
The editorial revisions which will be presented here are all accompanied by a critical commentary prepared by the editor of each edition, whose name appears in each publication (in some cases the revision process involves aspects such as the musical notation, dynamic indications, fingerings, etc).
The main body of this collection, which will be gradually published in this section of our website is formed by the personal collection of the Canadian guitarist and musicologist Abel Nagytothy-Toth, who willed to the musical community at large the fruits of a lifetime of research and an invaluable body of carefully complied and priceless documents: to him we offer our most sincere gratitude.
To his valuable contribution many other contributors have since added their own, each contribution subject to a careful screening process under the auspices of the Scientific Committee (which encourages anyone interested in contributing to the collection to contact us). 
These works are offered free of any charge to both students and professional performers alike with the intent to promote and encourage the the guitar's standing and repertoire. For all other intended uses we invite those interested to contact the responsible editors of the individual editions.  We also extend a cordial invitation to all those who make use of this collection to register on our mailing list Chitarra in Italia in order to receive information on the progress of this and other related projects. 
The musical editions will be arranged in the following categories: original compositions, and transcriptions (each in turn subdivided into two subcategories: solo works, and chamber music with guitar). In each category all entries are set in alphabetical order by composerís name, with information on the editor/transcriber/arranger where applicable.
