Although these early studies wereoriginally on the cello he switched to the guitar while still in his youth. Atthat time tutors for the newly emerging six single string guitar were few andso Carulli was compelled to develop his own pedagogical curriculum.
Part ofthis curriculum was to compose the appropriate studies necessary to further hismusical development. Eventually this course of study would lead to his Methodecomplete de guitar ou lyre Paris, , the most thorough guitar method publishedat that time. As with many other Italian virtuosi, Carulli migratednorth in the first decade of the nineteenth century and eventually settled in Paris.
His renown as a performer was well documented and there are numerous accountsthat refer to his extraordinary skill in both technical and musical contexts. As a composer Carulli was prolific, his published works numbering over , andhis style quite varied.
He also composed many original compositions,sonatas, concertos, duos, trios, and so on, in a similar style.

Musically, these works are reminiscent of early Haydnpiano sonatas and conform to the standard three movement classical formula: anopening sonata form movement followed by a lyrical adagio, or theme andvariation, and concluding with a lively rondeau. Throughout Carulli is able toincorporate pianist elements in a manner that sounds completely natural on theguitar.
Listen, for instance, to" Alberti bass" texture in theopening movement of Sonata No. Yet Carulli alsoretains his natural gift for lyrical Italianate melodies as demonstrated in theslow movements of Nos. Although they are not indicated Carulli seemsto provide the perfect opportunity to include some subtle ornamentation andshort cadenzas in these works, an option that I have chosen to exercise. Finally, I have also included an additional short sonata, Op.
