MOLINO 12years old learning francesco MOLINO prelude guitar violão francesco molino Italian musician and composer, born at Ivrea near Turin on 4 June 1768. At the age of fifteen, in 1783, he enrolled in the band of the Piedmont Regiment as an oboist, a post which he resigned in 1793. Also in this period, from 1786 to 1789, he played the viola in the orchestra of the Teatro Regio in Turin. Then from 1814 to 1818 he was employed in the royal chapel in Turin. (We do not yet know where he spent the period between 1793 and 1814.) By 1817 he had published two guitar methods (they are in Whistling's Handbuch for that year). Then in about 1820 he moved to Paris where he was very active as a teacher and composer, until his death there in 1847. He wrote two violin concertos, of which the second was dedicated to Kreutzer; one guitar concerto, op. 56; many works for guitar with other instruments; and many guitar solos. The details above about Turin come from the preface by Mario Dell'Ara to the Tecla edition of Molino's op. 3. See also his article "Luigi, Valentino, e Francesco Molino", Il Fronimo, no. 50, January 1985. . In 1820 he settled in Paris, where he lived out the remainder of his life. His works were largely neglected until the twentieth century, when many of them were republished. Among the best known are his Three Sonatas, 18 Preludes and Terpsichore (a set of dances), all for solo guitar. He also wrote for other instruments in combination with the guitar, including flute...
