Francesco Molino (also known as François Molino) (June 4, 1775 in Ivrea, Piedmont – 1847) was an Italian guitarist, violinist, and composer.

Biography[edit]

Molino was born in Ivrea near Turin. He often travelled to Spain to give concerts. He was orchestral conductor from 1796-97. 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 and viola. In 1830 he published a guitar method.
