Piano and Guitar



Ferdinando Carulli

Born in Naples of a distinguished literator, Carulli wrote more than 400 pieces for the guitar in 12 years, amongst them many for piano and guitar.

Carulli's first instrument was the cello and only discovered the guitar at age 20. After switching to the guitar, he devoted the rest of his life to advancing the performance, study, and construction of the instrument.
