Every guitarist should be honored, nay obligated, to have a read through Coste's works at least one in their life. The guitarist would be surprised how awesome (and better than Sor) Coste's works really are. Thanks to Mr. DELCAMP we have the honor, nay privilage, to do so at our convienience just by the click of a button. Most of Costes works are advanced so maybe that scares guitarists? idk, wish he were more popular than he is. If people would just give him a chance they'd find some serious compositions of grandiose complimented by a light hearted beauty touched with a bit of charm...And these masterpieces were written for our very own instrument. He was the Chopin of guitar. His music hands down brilliant. If any guitarists are out there hungry for a real guitar composition, have a look through Costes ingenious music, you will find nothing but greatness.

I guess these facsimiles have been up for a while, but I really enjoyed playing some of them.
A few are actually quite fun to play.
Merci Mr. Delcamp

Mr Delcamp, thank you for introducing me to Coste - I especially like Opus 51 - Barcarolle.

i think a thanks and acknowledgement should go out to REX, the royal library and copenhagen university library service, who are hosting and providing virtually all of this collection.

very helpful to have all the links in one place.

Hi mc1,
See also the famous op.38' facsimile edited by A. Cottin:

I went up into the attic and found a Stradivarius and a Rembrandt.
Unfortunately Stradivarius was a terrible painter and Rembrandt made lousy violins.

Coste compositions have finally been added to my repertoire list via exposure in the Delcamp online lessons and videos.

Added the Barcarolle Op.51 #1 and the Lesson 24 in D Minor from the Sor/Coste guitar method and will add more in the future.

I wish there was an english translation of the French Method for Guitar by Sor edited and revised by Napoleon Coste.
It is the Sor/Coste Method which includes 26 selected Sor studies--from previous Sor Opus works--from which Segovia selected a favorite 20 and published the now famous Segovia edition of 20 Sor studies.

Brian Jefferey appears to have taken a hostile tone towards Coste's edition of a Sor method and belittling it as a "travesty" and "a disservice to his friend’s memory" :-)

I simply see the Sor/Coste method as an updated/revised and extended version of a guitar method that blends the original Master's work with contributions from a star pupil who became a Master himself.
