MP3 files for Sor’s ‘Sixteen Easiest Pieces’

In Music on April 3, 2011 at 4:35 pm

The 19th-century guitar specialist publisher, Tecla, have placed my mp3 performances on their website:

These pieces by Fernando Sor are very beautiful studies and should be studied by all guitar students. My performances are on a copy of a guitar from Sor’s time, a Panormo, with gut strings at the lower pitch thought to be used at that time, and played with the flesh of my fingers, not with nails on nylon strings. The sound is very delicate, and most unlike performances on modern-day guitars.

Enjoy πŸ™‚
