Sor on Gut Strings

Rob MacKillop here is playing Sor on gut strings, with no nails, on a Panormo (copy) guitar, with the guitar resting on a table in front of him. Rob says:

These pages will document my attempt to perform the music of Fernando Sor with the techniques and interpretive practices outlined in his musical scores and tutors.”

Beautifully done!

  1. Fantastic! I’ve never heard Sor sound this good. Thanks for posting!

  2. I just love Rob MacKillop’s face during the whole piece. He’s so calm, yet determined. What a great performance!

  3. Lovely! Just fantastic, how he emphasizes the melody. Great in spite of, or perhaps because of the anachronistic instrument and technique 😉
