Fernando Sor (1778 – 1839, Spanish)

I haven’t explored the music of Fernando Sor, just listened here and then on guitar recitals in which he wasn’t necessarily the, or my, main focus, but I always felt the frustration that you had here a Spanish composer for the guitar who didn’t compose Spanish music for the guitar.
