Fernando Sor – Folies d’Espagne and minuet op. 15a for solo guitar


This is a digital download (pdf).

Sor’s Folies d’Espagne [op. 15a] is one of his most delightful works, published in Paris in about 1822-25 with the title Les Folies d’Espagne, variées, et un Menuet. A theme and four variations in E minor followed by a minuet, it shows a natural musical gift, lyricism, and strength: surely one of the most attractive guitar pieces of this period.

The theme and the first three variations are provided here as a FREE TO EVERYBODY item.

This edition comes from the new 2020 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.
