Student repertoire from early 19th-century St Petersburg. Tuning: DGBdgbd'. Aquila Russian guitar strings. Guitar by Roman Kuznetsov, Edinburgh.

This is from the time of Sor and Giuliani, but with a distinctive voice.

Thanks once again for sharing this wonderful music.

Andrei Sychra lived 1776(?) - 1850. That puts him right in the official academic time frame of CLASSICAL music. And he published over 1000 pieces for the guitar! What a treasure trove.

Indeed. And they cover student repertoire as well as pieces for those with ten fingers on each hand...

Thank you Rob! This is wonderful, my guess is that this piece had not been played for some hundred years or more. I am very glad that you wake this dormant treasures.

Yes, I got that date from wikipedia that had 1773 (1776?) as his birthdate and got lazy. Just after posting I read Oleg Timofeyev's article on the Russian 7 string. Here’s a link for those that may have missed it:

By the way, I very much enjoyed your playing in an earlier thread.
