Guess the composer

Hello guys,

for years my students have been playing this charming piece

which is in my finger memory and they wonder who's the author.

Help me out, please.

Thanks

Aik

  • I'm stumped. It's a nice little piece. I'd guess Romantic era, so maybe Jose Ferrer?

    It's Sor's op35 nr 22 in B minor (also features in Segovia's Sor's 20 studies)

    • Nina No, I'm afraid it's not. It's similar in texture, but not the same piece.

    It's 'Lecon 27' in Coste's edition of Sor's 'Methode Complete pour la Guitare'. Sor's original publication contains relatively few exercises. Coste's version includes several dozen pieces (including the one in question) which he himself composed. These serve to render the method a more practical introduction to the guitar. The Coste edition ends with a selection of 26 etudes chosen from Sor's separately published volumes of pedagogical pieces. This almost certainly served as the basis for Segovia's well-known edition of twenty Sor studies. (All but three of those chosen by Segovia are in the Coste publication.)

      David Krupka Yes, I agree with Blaise Laflamme - that is some crazy knowledge!

      Steve Pederson Blaise Laflamme Thanks guys! It's not so much 'knowledge' as memory, though. I do a lot of sight-reading. (In fact, that's about all I do, music-wise.) As it happens, following an injury a few years ago, I needed to go back to 'square one' in an effort to rehabilitate my left hand. I wound up working my way through most of the well-known 19th century method books: Carulli, Carcassi, Aguado, and so on. At some point I came across Coste's edition of Sor, which is in certain respects the best of the bunch. I generally read through everything (even if the result is a train wreck!) and when a piece sticks my fancy, I may play through it a dozen or more times over the course of a few days. That was the case here, which is why I recognized it.

    Hi everyone!
    Could you tell me what's this, please?

    • Beatriz That is C贸rdoba by Isaac Alb茅niz, part of his Chants d'Espagne. Here's a recording of it by Gohar Verdanyan.
