The Music of Luigi Sagrini includes 24 located copies of works by the 19th century guitarist Luigi Perret Sagrini published from 1825 to 1850. There are works for solo guitar, duo guitar, as well as guitar and piano. Additionally a work for guitar and piano by the guitarist Wilhelm Neuland is included at the end as it mentions it was "performed by  Mr. L. Sagrini & the Author." Sagrini published over 50 songs with guitar accompaniment which are not included in this volume. The music catalog in the introduction lists details for all the works in the volume as well as all songs.

Luigi Sagrini was a child prodigy on guitar who first performed at the age of eight years old in 1817. In Paris when he was sixteen years old he performed in concert with Liszt and published his first seven opus numbers for guitar. His opus 4 was dedicated to Luigi Legnani, and Legnani in turn dedicated his opus 9 and opus 32 to Sagrini. After arriving in London in 1829 he continued publishing and performing for many years. Due to declining health he stopped performing and devoted his time to teaching and publishing songs with guitar accompaniment. It was perhaps due to his inability to continue performing and publishing that he was forgotten in the 20th century.
