For example in the Sor studies, why is the one in Bm the most played, while although many of the others are very nice, they are rarely played as performance pieces but most of the time as ledagogical exercises only? That is a mystery to me.
There is an opinion that the essence of art is metaphor. If we accept this for a while, why not perceiving this etude by Sor as metaphorical story of two people who met, and the etude tells on development of their meeting, their interaction with it's ups and downs; then happened some dramatic culmination, and regardless they separated or not the story "calms down" and life/story continues in quietness. There is always a hope...
