Ferdinando Carulli (1770 - 1841) was one of the most famous of composers for classical guitar, and many of his four hundred pieces plus are still used today to help beginners learn the guitar and experts perfect certain techniques. He is also considered one of the best teachers of guitar in history.<br> <br> Carulli was born in Naples, Italy on February 9th, 1770. H is father, Michele, was a distinguished literator, secretary to the delegate of the Neapolitan Jurisdiction. Like many of his contemporaries, he was taught music theory firstly by a priest, who was an amateur musician, and his first instrument was the cello. When he was twenty he discovered the guitar, gave up the cello and devoted his life to the exclusive study and advancement of the guitar. Since there were no real teachers for the guitar in Naples at the time, he developed his own style of playing which he later published in his method, which is the same method that is used today (in part) by most when teaching the classical guitar.<br> <br> His local concerts in Naples were so popular that he soon began touring Europe, performing. Around 1801 Carulli married a French woman, Marie-Josephine Boyer, and their son, Gustavo, was born. A few years later Carulli started to compose in Milan, where he published some of his works for local publications. In 1808, due to his immense popularity whilst touring in Paris previously, Carulli moved to Paris, which was at the time the 'music-capital' of the world, and where he stayed for the rest of his life.<br> <br> Source: Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferdinando_Carulli).<br> <br> Although originally written for Classical Guitar Duet, I created this arrangement of the Andante in G for Classical Guitar and Concert (Pedal) Harp.
