This etude (study) belongs to Fernando Sor's '12 Studies for Guitar, Op. 35'. Whilst Sor's more famous pieces take the limelight it is important to remember his significant contribution to the development of guitar technique. The Spanish guitarist/composer is probably most well-known for his 'Variations on a Theme of Mozart'. Sor was widely traveled and lived in Paris, London, Moscow and toured Europe extensively before spending his final years in Paris.
