William Carter - Sor Late Works - The Scotsman


18 September 2011
The Scotsman
Alexander Bryce
5 Stars

As a composer of music for students of the guitar, Fernando Sor was criticised for creating works that were too difficult for them to play.

Yet Sor, whose last painful days were spent sitting at the piano, playing the funeral music he had composed after his only daughter's death a year before - could create works full of charm, light and tenderness, as expertly revealed in this recording by the American guitarist William Carter.

Most works last only a few minutes, yet they are as affecting as they are varied, and make you want to hear more.

Wonderful.
