Francesco Romano, lute and guitarist of the ensemble Gli Incogniti since its founding, devotes this album to Fernando Sor (1778-1839), the most important composer for guitar of the Classical Era, his style strongly influenced by the great composers of his time, especially Mozart. The extraordinary quality of his deep inspiration and sensitivity excels in his compositions of modest dimensions that contain a true poetic world. A significant selection of his works, including Variations on a Theme by Mozart, Op. 9, Six arias from Die Zauberflöte, the Fantasia, Op. 7 and a selection of his etudes and other short masterpieces are played on a marvellous original guitar of 1835 made by Luis Panormo, one of the Fernando Sor’s recommended luthiers, from the collection of the Conservatorio di Musica in Florence.
