Andres Segovia - 20 Studies for the Guitar: Book/CD Pack

Customer Reviews:

Guitar Mastery

By Isfahan - January 7, 2006

Segovia gleaned the most effective studies from Sor's extensive canon, compiling them into one album. Contrary to expectation, and common misconception, the album does not follow a graded progression; the album begins with Sor's polyphonic study Op. 6, No. 8, which corresponds to RCM (Royal Conservatory of Music) 7. Admittedly, the first few studies following the first are not exceedingly difficult, but before you decide to shell-out your hard-earned cash, bear in mind that this album was never intended to be a beginner's introduction to Fernando Sor, as the easiest studies require an intermediate level of guitar proficiency roughly corresponding to RCM 5.

The studies are all eminently playable and exceptionally challenging. There's the finger killing study in barre, Op. 29, No. 13. The study in sixths, Op. 6, No. 9. The study in thirds, Op. 6, No. 6.

Beautifully played, easy to read, great book/CD combo

By M. Verive - May 7, 2009

First of all, this book is NOT for the absolute beginner, as it contains many of Sor's more difficult etudes. However, the music is laid out well, easy to read, and the accompanying CD is a wonderful addition. The CD makes for wonderful listening all by itself, but is also indispensible for classical guitar students who need to hear the studies played well. I wish all of my other guitar books had an accompanying CD that sounded as beautiful!

Any budding classical guitar student needs this book.

By Robert D. Buzzell "classical lover" - April 28, 2008

Any level guitarist will find something here to stretch their skills.

The essential Sor studies are found here. The CD alone is worth the price.

However, no tableture. But still a great collection.
