AVAILABILITY: In Stock
The earliest collection of didactic pieces by Fernando Sor, the "12 Studies op. 6", was first published in London in 1815. The last one, the "Introduction to the Study of the Guitar op. 60", was composed in 1837, just two years before the composer`s death. The didactic pieces written and published by Fernando Sor throughout his entire creative life have remained in print to well-nigh a century and a half now. In spite of the appearance of more recent developments in guitar literature, these pieces have demonstrated a resilience of purpose seldom seen in guitar music of the early nineteenth century. Indeed, this was, and will remain so, the mainstay of guitar pedagogy.
