FZ Compositions

This is an attempt to do a chronological list of FZ compositions. The dates are taken from interviews, articles, liner notes, books, programs, the first known recording, the first known performance of the piece, copyright records, the first mention of it, or just an educated guess. Some compositions have been grouped, some others have been divided. Guitar solos, improvisations and anthropological field recordings haven't been listed except in some special cases. The names between square brackets come not from any official source, but from tape collectors, scholars, or even bootleggers. Or they are just plain guesses. Any correction, addition, suggestion or comment is welcome. Román
