Sor, Fernando - op.06/08 Etude - Video

Postby Tom Poore » Thu Mar 17, 2016 4:20 am

I imagine this particular study has been done to death. But I like it, so here’s an old recording of mine. The paintings are by Marguerite Gérard (1761-1837).

That’s perhaps the most Delphic comment my playing has ever elicited.

I'm not sure if this study has been "done to death" as you say. But even if it has, that's only because it's a great piece with lots of interesting harmonies and counterpoint. So I'm more than happy to listen to your interpretation and performance of it. This study also reminds me of how Sor was often able to do so much with so little.

Very nicely played.

Hearing the piece always reminds me of when, back in the late 60s, the teacher I owe most to gave me this piece from the Sor/Segovia book to learn. Some years previously he had attended the Segovia Siena Summer School and when he gave me the piece he told how on the first day there they were given this study and asked to prepare it for the following day. I can understand why, there is so much going on in it, so much to bring out.

Incidentally, I went to my next lesson thinking I had done really well. ....... I was soon put right about that (I was playing the notes but had barely even scratched the surface of the piece).

That was very nice. It's a lesson that these little studies can't be bashed out. If played sensitively they demonstrate that they are little musical gems in themselves.
