This is a lovely disc of wonderful music, beautifully played by William Carter.
Sor's music is very beautiful and extremely well crafted; if it had been written for piano rather than guitar it would probably be far better known and celebrated. The great Andres Segovia was a champion of Sor's music and one can see why; it is full of melodic and harmonic invention and a real pleasure to listen to.
William Carter plays superbly, to my ears. I am no expert on this music, but I think I know good playing when I hear it and this is fabulous. It is technically flawless and has an empathy and fluency which makes the music really glow, I think. The sound which Carter brings from his guitar is just wonderful – superbly recorded, as always, by Linn.
The whole thing is a huge pleasure and I can recommend it very warmly.
