Here’s a free edition of Nocturne No. 2, Op. 4  by Johann Kaspar Mertz (1806–1856). Mertz was a Hungarian guitarist and composer who wrote many concert works for guitar as well as some easier collections including Op. 4 from which this piece originates. I’ve made a free copy to attract guitarists to the site and a tablature (tab) version for those who need it. FYI, I forgot to mention that there is actually an Allegro con brio that is often played attacca to this which you can see in the facsimile here but not included in my score. Join the Email Newsletter to get updates on free sheet music and more.
