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.

  • 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.)

      Eric Phillips Hannah will present in her weekly livestreams different countries and the romantic music that originated there! While you can limit yourself to those regions per week, it is definitely not a requirement and you can continue to work on other romantic pieces in the following weeks (and don't have to start with pieces from Paris!)!

    • Barney Hey Barney, Sainz de la Maza is a 20th century composer, but we will definitely be discussing composers that influenced him!

      Hannah Murphy Thank you Hannah!   I just started working on Rondena by that composer, so was just wondering.  We are looking forward to this new challenge with you!

  • Surprise, this challenge. When we started the previous one, ‘the romantic era’, I interpreted this as ‘the period of the romantic guitar’, so Sor, Giuliani, Coste etc. Nice, now we are getting  a second chance….
