Sor’s Op 35 No 22, in B minor. That’s Segovia Study #5, I believe.
Evidently, Bream wowed people with that piece when he played it for a guitar society early in his playing days.
Yes, #5. It's a lovely study, one I've been working on for over a year. Almost have all the kinks sorted out.
If you haven't already, get the entire Segovia/Sor set of 20 studies. Enough to keep us busy for years to come. I've also been working on #2 and #3. One of these years I'll tackle #1.
Yes, it is a wonderful study, and so much can be done with it. Here is Kevin Gallagher's rendition:
I bought an old edition of the Segovia studies by the Edward B. Marks Music Corporation, from 1945. I don't think this edition is that hard to find. It has a picture of Segovia as a young man on the cover.
One tip: Use a hinge at bar 41. I think hinges can also be used in other places. It is a good study in trying to figure out when to have a relaxed bar and when you need a little more tension, but not so much tension as to cause pain. I'm working on getting my arm more involved in the bar chords.
