FOR THE LOWEST POSSIBLE PRICE CARULLI COMPLETE WORKS FOR GUITAR & FORTEPIANO Ferdinando Carulli (1770-1841) was a Neapolitan composer and a virtuoso on the guitar. He emancipated the instrument, and made it a favourite of the Parisian salons, where it became increasingly popular. Combining the guitar with the fortepiano he wrote a great many duets, variations and arrangements of popular works (notably the overtures of Rossini). Very graceful and tuneful music!
