Few words about composer:

Ivan Padovec was born at Varaždin, Croatia 17.07.1800.

He was start as self-taught guitarist. After some concert at Croatia (and after he heard M.Giuliani playing guitar) he go to study at Vienna and continue to perform at other Europe cities (Prague, Frankfurt, Hamburg, London,...).
At year 1848 he was back to Varaždin, unfortunalely stone-blind. But he keep going with teaching and compose music for guitar (with folk Croatian motives, also).
Using scheme of his own he invite a guitar with 10 strings (kept in Zagreb, Art museum)!
He compose more than 200 composition for solo guitar, duets and some for chambers (published by A.Diabelli) but it is not known where are all of his pieces because he sent some pieces to Vienna (to unknown person).

He died 04.11.1873.

BTW:
Recently I was at concert of Dukić and Brčić. They played "Carneval at Venice" by Padovec, of course, a little demanding than this piece. :)
