1856 Brussels Competition

This timeline includes all references to and writings about the 1856 Brussels guitar composition and instrument competition organized by Nikolai Petrovich Makaroff [Николай Петрович Макаров] (February 1, 1810 – December 5, 1890).

Where possible I will include copies of the original publications. I’m certain there is more information to uncover about this event. Please contact me if you can share anything I have not included below. I will add all references over time with translation sources documented. If anyone can improve on the translations I welcome your help.
