Fernando Sor (1778-1839)

Fernando Sor was born into a fairly well off and respected family, sometime in February of 1778. The exact date is not known, but it is known that he was baptized on February 14, 1778 in Barcelona, Spain as Jose Fernando Macarurio Sors. Although Sor wrote many other types of works for many mediums of performance including: piano, opera, and ballet, he is best remembered for his guitar studies, and other guitar works. They form an integral part in the study, and performance at concert level, of the guitar. - Malaspina Biography
