Sor, Fernando - op.60/23 - Video

Post by Stephen Kenyon » Fri Feb 08, 2019 11:21 pm

This piece I find extremely interesting and a little challenging to understand. On the one hand it seems very disparate; three different ideas follow each other with little in common, the last of which seems remarkably akin to what we might now call Malaguena. Then the first idea returns, one which seems for the 1830s quite Brahmsian.

Sounds great to me! This is probably my favorite from opus 60 :)

Hey, that guitar is not in your signature! Haha - new one? Or trying out a student's instrument perhaps?

Thanks 8)

these videos were made with a view to promoting it for sale for a charity to which it was donated; in the end somebody went for it before I uploaded them...

Beautifully played, and a nice sounding recording, too. This is one of my favorite Sor pieces, having first heard it on a Starobin CD.

Very nice! As much as I am into these opuses from Sor, I had not heard this one very many times yet or tried to play it.
Turns out this one is a very nice gem and you've played it with a lovely sound and sensibility. Thank you for sharing!
