Study No 20 by Fernando Sor performed by Jeff Dwarshuis

Track 12 of the recording “The Guitar Works of Fernando Sor”. This was originally titled Etude Opus 29 No. 17.  As Segovia selected this study he most likely was thinking about its close yet less demanding partner of Etude #1 (Track 1). Both studies share a range of common elements. Both are in the key of C and both involve the extensive use of sliding chords to push melodic suggestion. Etude twenty differs in its timing demands as well as covering a wider range of the guitar.
