This is most worrying, Zixi. I'd never heard of Diabelli and Carcassi, and Wikipedia tells me it's because neither was born until after the End of the Musical World (around 1750). But they're both quite decent composers and I rather like Diabelli, having listened to a couple of bits of YouTube. I may be forced to rethink the timing of the End.

I hope you don't mind that I bask in having introduced you to people you didn't know. smile.png I am always in awe of the breadth and depth of your musical knowledge.  Carcassi composed lots of little pieces designed as exercises for his guitar students. I love these pieces. They're very musically satisfying and at my level, they expect dexterity both in sight reading and fingering. I didn't know Diabelli at all but my husband recognised him at once and enthused.
