Description

"L'Encouragement is, along with Souvenir de Russie, Les deux amis and the Fantaisie op. 54, amongst the most demanding duo compositions of its day. The principal source of this edition is the edited version by Napoleon Coste (1805-1883). In it the two instruments alternate voice so frequently that they are effectively equals and in my opinion it is also more musically impressive than Fernando Sor's earlier version." Olaf van Gonnissen

Reviews

I am sure that the greater majority of players will know this wonderful piece of writing (...) you may have purchased the Sor original score to find that the parts were distributed differently, for in the original the top part is the melody line and the 2nd part is the accompaniment (...) because they were playing using the Napoleon Coste edition where Coste (Sor's pupil) arranged the music so that each player got their fair share of the melody. This latest edition (...) uses the Coste edition as its basic source. As such, this fine version of Sor's great duet is arguably a better option for two very good players, as both get a chance at the melody line and in my humble opinion the piece is improved considerably as a result. So, if this idea appeals, then this new publication of this masterwork is probably one to go for. Classical Guitar Magazine June 2014 (Chris Dumigan )
