Sor Etude in E Minor





Etude in E minor, Op. 29, No. 12: Fernando Sor (1778-1839)









Spanish composer Fernando Sor composed so many etudes that some very fine ones are often overlooked. Heres one that seldom shows up in performances, but its relative obscurity is belied by its pensive and haunting beauty. (link to sheet music)
