Fernando Sor: 24 Etudes, Fernando Sor (1778–1839) wrote many studies (etudes) for classical guitar. A virtuoso performer and composer, Fernando Sor was famed in his day and well remembered today. Sor studies vary greatly in their pedegogical use, some are exercises while others shy away from the etude aspect and are simply nice compositions. Sor studies may not be remembered for their compositional genius but they do require a special classical touch to bring out the musicality of the studies. Yepes was already quite a eter back in the 50s and 60s when such was rare Eric Reesor.

Fernando Sor. Josep Ferran Sorts i Muntades (baptized 14 February 1778 – died 10 July 1839) was a Spanish classical guitarist and composer. While he is best known for his guitar compositions, he also composed music for a wide range of genres, including opera, orchestra, string quartet, piano, voice, and ballet. As Sor's works were published in various countries, his name was translated, leading to variations in the spelling. location on Google Map. Yepes.
