From strumming the chords of an easy song to deeply expressive and spectacular technical heights, the classical guitar is in many ways a perfect instrument. The best works for guitar have often been by composers who were also virtuosos on the instrument: Fernando Sor and Francisco Tárrega laying the repertoire’s foundations with their subtle brilliance. Alongside delightful arrangements of famous works by Bach and Paganini this programme takes us from the wit and energy of Rodrigo’s Fandango to the unforgettable beauty of Stanley Myers’s Cavatina, famed as the theme to The Deer Hunter.

For those who are new to an instrument, the first question is often: where to start? The ‘Best Loved’ series offers an easy answer to that question and a perfect introduction to the wonderful, varied world of classical music. Spotlighting individual instruments in some of the best-loved pieces ever written, and with a mix of solo, chamber and orchestral works, the series provides a convenient introduction to classical music’s infinite variety of instrumental sounds and styles.
