Sor and Giuliani
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Fernando Sor and Mauro Giuliani were the greatest guitar composers and virtuosos in the classical era. Luca Villani, Italian accomplished guitarist at his 20th festival in Edinburgh, offers a varied and challenging portrait of their great music. Luca will be interpreting famous Sonatas and Fantasias: Grande Sonata Op 22 and Fantasia Op 30 by Sor, Grande Ouverture and Rossiniana No 3 by Giuliani. An unusual Scottish homage is represented by the Sor's Scottish Fantasy and Giuliani's arrangements of traditional Scottish airs. All surrounded by the magical Greyfriars evocative acoustic.
