I have the Chanterelle urtext edition
. I chose it because it has some additional commentary (such as a suggested grading of the exercises). That's nice and all, but I believe the Mel Bay Complete Sor Studies for Guitar
has a spiral binding that allows the music to lie flat. There are also a couple of Tecla collections of Sor's studies. I think the music itself is pretty much the same no matter who publishes it.
I'm memorized the first 4 etudes of opus 35. I love them and practice them every day. I think I could be happy just sticking with learning these 121 Sor studies.
Do you have a favorite Sor piece that is not
included in his studies? There are so many Sor scores
, it would take a lifetime to go through them all.
