Story behind the song
Carulli is a composer whose name is well known chiefly to guitarists, both as the author of a useful teaching manual and as a composer. Born in Naples, he was at first a cellist, but turned as a young man to the guitar. He moved in 1808 to Paris, where he remained until his death in 1841.
