Sychra, Andrei - Journals #13 and # 26 - 7-string Russian Guitar - Video

More from the Journals that Sychra published in St Petersburg in (I think) the 1820s.

Numbers 13 and 26, “Near the River, Near the Bridge (a theatre song)” and “Hey, Prepare dances and Entertainment.”
Two interestingly-titled pieces! The second is from a comic opera, “A Cossack Poet” of 1812 – thanks to Oleg Timofeyev for that information.

Once again, thanks for posting these unique and charming compositions.

Interesting to think of the guitarist in 1820 as a journalist to bring his work to the public and put the concept in modern perspective. Of course I don't know a thing about the publishing business of St Petersburg at the time. Maybe he had someone like Rasumovsky foot the bill.

I believe he was famous, and his publications popular. I'm not sure if he needed a patron.

Unique and charming sums them up. Amateur stuff, but very enjoyable to study and play.

As a begining guitar student, if my studies were directed at all they were to Carcassi, Giuliani, and Sor. As an off again, on again student the one I keep coming back to is Sor. For the most part their intrinsic beauty is unrelated to the level of difficulty though I think they all present a challange.

Though not familiar with many of Sychra's works, my first impressions are that, like Sor, he put the "amat" into amateur.
