Fernando Sor – Variations on a Theme of Mozart op. 9 for solo guitar


This is a digital download (pdf).

Sor’s variations on a theme from Mozart’s The Magic Flute [op. 9] are among his most famous works. They are dedicated to his brother Carlos Sor who had also escaped from Spain at the end of the war there in 1813 and had joined his brother in Paris and then from 1820 to 1821 visited him in London where both brothers taught the guitar. It is a grand work with five variations and a coda which makes a triumphal end to the work.


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.
