Born in Florence, Italy, Matteo Carcassi (1792 - 1853)
began learning the piano as a child, and followed this
by learning the guitar. From 1820 Carcassi conducted
his career from Paris, where he had stiff competition
from another Italian guitarist Ferdinando Carulli.
There was nevertheless a voracious market for his solo
guitar compositions. He had a subscription to
Francesco Molino's "Nouvelle Méthode pour la Guitare",
which was a popular teaching book at the time.
Carcassi's compositions appealed to students of the
guitar as the pieces were technically accessible.
However, his works have been performed and recorded by
many sublime performers as well.
