Fernando Sor – Folies d’Espagne for guitar op. 15a (first part)


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

This shows the beginning of Folies d’Espagne, one of Sor’s most charming works, not too difficult for a relative beginner. It was first published in Paris in about 1822-25 with the title Les Folies d’Espagne, variées, et un Menuet. This is one of my own favourite pieces by Sor.

The complete Folies d’Espagne op. 15(a) by Sor 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.
