£2.92

This is a digital download (pdf).

Sor’s Fantaisie op. 54 bis, published in Paris in about 1833, is a remarkable work in the history of Spanish music and its diffusion throughout Europe. It has an Andante allegro leading into an Andantino, followed by an Allegro dans le genre espagnol.

The fine Allegro dans le genre espagnol is the first and only piece for guitar without voice which Sor is known to have written in the popular Spanish style.

You can hear the whole Fantaisie op. 54 bis played splendidly here by Claudio Maccari and Paolo Pugliese. The Allegro dans le genre espagnol begins at 5’11”. 

This edition comes from the new 2019 second edition of Sor’s New Complete Works for Guitar edited by Brian Jeffery. The Introduction and Index to the entire series can be seen here on this site.
