William Carter - Sor Late Works - The Independent
10 July 2011The Independent
Played on the fingertips, Carter's gracefully
shaped recital takes its title from the Opus 50 Caprice pour guitar
seul, an idyll pitched on the cusp of Romanticism.
The disappointments of the Spanish composer's
later years are seldom evident. The Andante Largo of the Opus 54 Morceau
de concert is more elegant than tragic, while the ping of harmonics in
the delicious Waltz Op 32 No 2 seems tailor-made to tickle the fancy of
the ballerinas Sor spent much of his money on.
