‘Fernando Sor: The Beethoven of the Guitar’ features Grammy-nominated guitarist Manuel Barrueco performing music of the celebrated Spanish guitar virtuoso and revered composer, Fernando Sor (1778-1839). His music is flashy and virtuosic, and he was often called ‘the Beethoven of the guitar’ by his contemporaries.

Says Barrueco: “This Sor recording includes several of my own personal favorites as well as a few little-known works that perhaps deserve more attention. In my opinion, Sor’s genius comes through most clearly in his short pieces, many of them perfect little gems filled with elegance, balance, refinement, and above all, beauty.”
