Sor, Fernando - op.35/17 Exercice, Segovia no.6 - D04

Post by Toad » Sat Sep 24, 2011 1:13 pm

Hi all,

Here's my go at this study.

I always used to play this much quicker, but I've just read William Carters' excellent sleeve notes from his cd 'Le Calme: Fernando Sor Late Works'. Apparently Sor was mourning the death of both his wife and daughter and very ill during the later part of his life. Now when I play this piece it comes out a bit sad and reflective.

I used my spruce Christopher Dean guitar for this recording.

Your beautiful phrasing brings out the expressiveness of this music. :merci:

Very nicely played. I think you succeeded in bringing a more melancholy feeling out of the piece. I really like how it sounds at this pace. Thank you for sharing this.

Gorgeous. I think it's a great tempo you chose :)

have to agree with all the previous "well played" comments... I'm working on this and it's cool to hear you play it so well. that guitar sounds great.

Yes, nice job. I am inspired to go back to it and try playing it slower also

the knowledge of when the composer wrote his piece really bring us more feeling, even as an audience.
where can i find the list or reference of Sor's composition that i can figure out when(which year) each piece was written?
