The repertoire of this recital consists of nineteenth- century music originally written for classical guitar and piano. Interestingly enough, there were quite a few composers who wrote music for this uncommon instrumentation. Although composers such as Mauro Giuliani (Italy), Ferdinando Carulli (Italy), and Anton Diabelli (Austria) has been recognized as a representative depiction of their epoch, it is still
difficult to find a concert built on the repertoire for guitar and piano. Hence, this project is based on disseminating such marvelous music.
