A rare collection of early Romantic Period repertoire from the pen of the Viennese master Johann Kaspar Mertz (1806-1856). This collection includes 34 intermediate-level works for classic guitar available for the first time in modern notation, with critical notes. Included are the complete pieces from Mertz's opus 1, 2, 5, 9, 12 and 33, all taken from the first 19th-century editions. These pieces are highly playable with a wide harmonic palette that make them perfect for study and beginning recitals. Written in standard notation only.
