Played on original guitars from the period. The Sor duets were performed from the Tecla facsimile edition of Sor's Complete Works for Guitar volumes 8 and 9 which includes them all. (By the way, that Tecla facsimile edition is now out of print, but the same music is available in volumes 8 to 11 of the new re-engraved Tecla edition Sor: The New Complete Works for Guitar Solo and Guitar Duet.) For the full list of contents, see below.
The performers are Claudio Maccari and Paolo Pugliese, playing on guitars of the period with the technique of the period and interpretation on historical lines. CDs from Brilliant Classics.
I (BJ) wrote the sleeve notes.
“...Souvenir de Russie is
one of the very best of all duos from this period, and I have never
heard it played as well as it is here. This is really great music
making!” (Soundboard, 2010)
