Collection: Molino, Francesco

Molino was born in Ivrea near Turin. He often travelled to Spain to give concerts. He was an orchestral conductor during 1796–97. In 1820, he settled in Paris, where he lived for the remainder of his life.

His works were largely neglected until the twentieth century, when many 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 and violin. In 1830, he published a guitar method.
