Description VOLUME 13 - LLOBET'S LIBRARY - FERNANDO SOR
A unique view of Llobet, as a champion and arranger of Sor.
The Sor Studies reproduce in facsimile are from Llobet's own library.
In an interview in Barcelona in 1929, which is reproduced in full in this edition, Llobet announced his intention of preparing a new edition of the Sor studies. Judging by the density of his marking and copious added and altered fingering in this facsimile edition he seemed in fact to be doing just this. Unfortunately a new edition edited by him never came to fruition!
We have prepared our facsimile edition of these later printings of Simrock editions (a gift from Erwin Schwarz-Reiflingen in 1928) carefully restoring the originals to make these pages clearer, so that not only is everything more legible, but most importantly, all Llobet´s fingering and ammendments are clearly legible.
Included in this volume dedicated to Sor, we have re-engraved for inclusion here, all 6 of Llobet's very fine Sor transcriptions from La Guitarra in Argentina, fingered and arranged by Llobet.
