A Celebration of the Beethoven of Guitar: Fernando Sor

Week of September 19th

Fernando Sor: 24 Progressive Lessons & 6 Little Pieces
Norbert Kraft and Jeffrey McFadden

Fernando Sor was not only one of the great guitarists of his era but a major composer for the instrument, described by a contemporary critic as “the Beethoven of the guitar”. His desire for the guitar to represent a miniature orchestra in timbre is a distinctive feature of his many compositions. Tune in all week to hear wonderful selections from this new album.
