MUSIC FOR FLUTE OR VIOLIN AND GUITAR
by Fernando Sor
Arranged by Eugène den Hoed.
Muziekuitgeverij Iduna VOF 32pp.
The title is a little misleading in that it gives the impression that here is a collection of music originally for this instrumentation. In fact all these pieces were originally guitar solos and have been arranged as duets by Eugène den Hoed.
The originals are from opus 2, 31, 33, 35 and Sor’s ‘Method’ and quite a few should be known to the Intermediate player. Eugene den Hoed has kept the technical level to around Grades 3-4 and as most of these pieces are of a highly lyrical nature, this publication could be of interest to ‘amateur’ duos and teachers (for sight-reading material). The publication comes as score-only but the album contains no page turns and can easily be read by two players sharing a music stand.
