Fernando Sor – Andante for guitar op. 45 no. 5


This is a digital download (pdf). It is FREE TO EVERYBODY.

This Andante op. 45 no. 5 was the first piece by Sor that I played, having found it many years ago in Isaias Savio’s anthology of music by Sor.

Don’t play it too slowly. Andante at that time did not necessarily mean slow as it usually does now! It only meant “keep a steady beat”.

The complete set of Sor’s Voyons si c’est ça op. 45 is available from Tecla Editions at www.tecla.com as part of the new 2019 second edition of Sor’s New Complete Works for Guitar edited by Brian Jeffery. For details about Sor’s music and his biography, please see www.tecla.com.
