FAQ for "Around the 19th Century Guitar world" with Hannah Murphy!
Welcome to the 19th Century!
The 19th century was a time of great invention and exciting virtuosos in the world of classical guitar. Join me each week as I explore what was happening in the salons, parlors, and concert halls in the greatest cities in Europe during the Romantic Era.
We will be diving into the classical guitar scenes of Paris, Vienna, Italy, and Spain. Learn some of the best examples of classical guitar music from each of those regions and what connected those composers to each other, to the music, and to the world at large.

Can I do more than one piece per week?
Absolutely! -Feel free to explore as many pieces as you want! It’s about exploring the 19th Century!
I don't quite understand. Are we just posting any pieces we want from the 19th century? During week one, should we limit ourselves to guitar composers from Paris (Sor, Carcassi, Carulli, Coste)? Are we posting something other than repertoire? Should I just shut up and wait until the kickoff next Friday? (I'm not good at waiting.)
