fantasie sur les folies de l’espagna

After the first approaches to writing for guitar and after composing the Concerto for Guitar and Strings my interest in this instrument remained as strong as the first time I wrote for guitar.

The result were the 5 Studies for Guitar from 1990 and this Fantasie sur les Folies de L’Espagna which was written based on the Variations on a Theme of Sor Op.1 by the brilliant guitarist Miquel Llobet.

The piece follows style of some of the variations introduced by Llobet but with notable changes and transformations.

It should be said that the work is a double homage to Llobet and Sor.
