Andante (from Schule für die Guitarre) by Johann Kaspar Mertz (1806-1856) for classical guitar. This is a great little piece reminding me of Chopin with some Schubert in there too! Great melody with some lush chords to fill out the texture. Make use of the dramatic gestures and accents and shape the melody as you might sing it.
