publishers of books and music, especially for classical guitar, available worldwide
Tecla Editions publishes a large quantity of music especially for guitar, including authentic editions of guitar music by Sor, Giuliani, Carcassi, and others, and some books. The standard of editing is always rigorously high and authentic. The publications are reasonably priced and you can easily get them worldwide.
To find any given work - especially if you already know what you are looking for - go first to the Complete Catalogue by Authors / Composers and then under each composer you will find all the works by that composer published by Tecla.
Among our publications are the New Complete Works for Guitar of Fernando Sor (1778-1839) and Complete Works of Mauro Giuliani (1781-1829). With these editions you have access to the many hundreds of pieces which are the core of that repertory. There are also many works by other composers, about 2,000 separate compositions contained in about 300 publications.
From Simon Revill, a teacher who recently bought the clothbound Tecla
edition of Giuliani's Complete Studies:
Gohar Vardanyan has made a video of Sor's famous study in B minor (op. 35 no. 22) from the Tecla book Fernando Sor: The Complete Studies with very useful comments.
From the Tecla book Sor: The Sixteen Easiest Pieces for guitar: Rob MacKillop has made videos playing all the sixteen pieces (look a bit down from the top of his page) Very good, played on a fine modern copy of a Lacote guitar. Have a look!
And also Rob MacKillop has made another video, of five pieces from Sor's Introduction to the study of the guitar op. 60 (all five pieces are available in the Tecla edition of Sor's Complete Studies).
Don't forget: if you already know what you are looking for - go first to the Complete Catalogue by Authors / Composers and then under each composer you will find all the works by that composer published by Tecla. It is also a good place to start browsing.

"Dar en la tecla" - to hit the nail on the head (old Spanish phrase).
