Fernando Sor (1778-1839): Complete Sonatas for Guitar / Andrea Dieci, guitar

Notes & Reviews:

Fernando Sor (1778-1839) was one of the most important and successful composers for the guitar in the first half of the nineteenth century. Spanish by birth he tried his luck in the musical capital of the world of that time, Paris, a time when the guitar received a true revival and emancipation as a valuable and respected classical instrument. Sor's guitar works show an incredible skill and present many technical and musical innovations. His "Grande Sonatas" for guitar are true masterpieces of the genre, substantial works in which the features and forms of the Classical Style of Hummel and Boccherini are imbued with salon drama and a great dose of virtuosity: this is high class entertainment. Andrea Dieci has already made several successful recordings for Brilliant Classics, and has been praised as "An impressive guitarist" (New York Times) and "A true star of the classical guitar" (Corriere della Sera).
