Description

(grades 1-8)
Edited by Brian Jeffery

Contains all Sor’s famous studies, lessons, and exercises for guitar complete in one book (opus numbers 6, 29, 31, 35, 44, and 60, complete). It includes all the well-known twenty studies which Andrés Segovia edited, and all the studies, lessons, and exercises by Sor which are now prescribed by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in their current guitar syllabus, but every piece is now newly edited by Brian Jeffery directly from the original editions. Sor's own detailed comments on several of the pieces, and with only Sor's fingering, no modern fingering.

TECLA 0101. Prescribed by the Associated Board for the studies by Sor for all grades (grades 1-8) in the current Associated Board guitar syllabus (2009/2010).

Why should I use this edition rather than any other? - Because this Tecla edition of Sor’s Complete Studies establishes a new and fully reliable text, fully practical, at a very reasonable price, easily available with low postage worldwide. I (Brian Jeffery) established for the first time the complete edition of Sor’s guitar music back in 1976, and this edition of the Complete Studies is again newly established strictly from the original editions.

Also because it is fully authentic and has no fingering other than that which Sor himself put. Some other modern editions which are on sale add modern fingering, but Sor wrote some of his studies specifically to give practice in certain fingering, so that to add different modern fingering for such a piece seems perverse because it cancels out Sor’s own intention. Also my own experience from having played this music in many concerts is that for me at least, Sor’s fingering is far easier than modern fingering. Use Sor’s own fingering and everything is fine.
