Description 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 fingering he seemed in fact to be doing just this. Unfortunately a new edition edited by him this never came to fruition!
We have prepared our edition from reproduced these original later printings of Simrock editions, which were a gift from Erwin Schwarz-Reiflingen in 1928, the restauration has been carefully carried out so that not only is everything more legible but importantly all Llobet´s fingering and ammendedments can clearly be seen.
The six original works by Sor (arranged and fingered by Llobet) have been newly engraved.
