Week 2: Vienna in 19th !
Welcome to the Main Thread for the second week of the "Around the 19th Century Guitar World" challenge!
Vienna was a hub for all classical music in the 19th century. Home to Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, among others, the classical guitar was alive and well in the 19th century. In Vienna in the 19th century classical guitar composers were heavily influenced by orchestral composers and had relationships with them; Giuliani played cello in the premiere of Beethoven’s 7th symphony and Mertz arranged Schubert’s Songs for Piano and Voice on guitar.

Eric Phillips You didn't come across as nervous at all to me.
To all: Considering informal live performance is the one thing missing from this platform, I wonder if they'd be amenable to opening up a periodic live guitar society type event. People could share what they're working on without the "masterclass" or "concert" label to stress over. Zoom is free if it's under 40 minutes, but tonebase might want to keep it within platform. I think it'd be beneficial but let me know what you think.
Or let me know if it's already there but I missed it, lol.
