Fernando Sor (Composer)

Born: 13th February 1778, Barcelona

Died: 10th July 1839, Paris

Nationality: Spanish

Fernando Sor was a Spanish classical guitarist and composer. Best known for writing solo classical guitar music, he also composed an opera (at the age of 19), three symphonies, guitar duos, piano music, songs, a Mass, and at least two successful ballets: Cinderella, which received over one hundred performances, and Hercule et Omphale.

Partly because Sor was himself such a classical guitar virtuoso—contemporaries considered him to be the best in the world—he made a point of writing didactic music for players of that instrument of all levels.
