Nocturno, Op. 11, No. 1: José Ferrer Esteve de Fujadas (1835-1916)









Respected in his day as a teacher, performer, and composer, Spaniard José Ferrers music is conservative and aimed at the salon. Though seldom performed on the concert stage today, this music has a winsome charm—provided its played with empathy and affection. Ferrers Op. 11 Dos Nocturnos, published in 1888, bears the dedication A mi querido amigo Dr. Juan Ferran. The second of these Nocturnos occasionally finds favor with amateur players. But curiously, the attractive first one gets overlooked. Being the runt of the litter, Ive taken a shine to it. It offers a chance to make the guitar sing. (link to sheet music)
