The guitar in the world of the Classical Sonata

In the musical world of today we are all conversant with the sonatas of Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms etc. However, several of the well-known composers who have written for the guitar, and whom we think of mainly as enhancing its folkloristic image, have also explored ways of using the classical Sonata Form in their works.

The famous guitarist Mauro Guiliani, a friend of Beethoven’s, is the composer of a beautiful sonata which is truly classical, and though the Spaniard Vicente Ascensio makes large use of his country’s folk music in the Suite Valencia, the movements are strongly influenced by the principles governing the sonata. The Sonatina by Moren-Torroba was one of the first (and is today one of the most famous) classical works in the guitar repertoire; Antonio Lauro from Venezuela has created a Sonata which is remarkable in its impressionistic colouring - and to choose between the 6 Sonatas of the Mexican composer Manuel M. Ponce is not at all easy.

„The winging of the colibri“

A super hot day in Mexico. The sky without any clouds, the sun burns down on our skin. People, exhausted, are sitting on the stairs of the Pyramides. Exotix animals are roaming through the woods. It´s where we meet little Pepito
