"I've received my order!!!! It's the best collection that I've seen!!!! The quality is incredible!!!" (a customer in Brazil, writing about the New Complete Works for Guitar of Sor)

JUNE 2004: "This is a new contribution by Brian Jeffery . . . Most interesting in this work are Jeffery's "Notes on the Pieces" at the beginning of each volume. These notes contain such information as publication history, background, and major editorial concerns. This really provides a wealth of information for the player of these works. This is a beautifully produced work. The paper and covers are of very high quality, and the volumes stay open easily on the stand. These books are a pleasure to work with. This new edition of Sor is excellent." (Soundboard, 2004).

"This work [Volume 1] is highly recommended, and I anxiously await the publication of the remaining volumes" (Classical Guitar).

"... ai bellissime lavori di Sor per due chitarre ... una nuova versione ... redatta in partitura nel massimo rispetto della stesura originale di Sor. ... corpose e interessantissime introduzioni ai due volumi ... L'impaginazione e la stampa assolutamente pregevolissime" (Il Fronimo)              MORE REVIEWS

Hear the Cantabile from Sor's duet for two guitars L'Encouragement op. 34, played by Lars Hedelius-Strikkertsen and Ruben Ipsen - it's entertaining as well as musical.  (This duet L'Encouragement, by the way, is in volumes 8 to 11 of this Tecla New Complete Works for Guitar of Sor)
