Watch George Sakellariou Play Three Studies by Sor

Our new issue will be out by the end of May, and in it you’ll find the results of our poll on the guitar “methods” and etudes CG readers’ found most valuable in their development as players. Spoiler alert: The “winner” (not that it was really a competition) was Fernando Sor (1778–1839), whose methods and etudes were adapted and endorsed by Segovia and, well, just about every professional guitarist out there. (OK, we’re exaggerating.) Enjoy this video of the great George Sakellariou playing three Sor studies on a fantastic-sounding 1970 Miguel Rodriguez guitar once owned by Pepe Romero! —BJ
