Martín i Soler & Fernando Sor: Music for Voice and Guitar

Martín i Soler & Fernando Sor: Music for Voice and Guitar

This concert presents the repertoire of two of the most important Spanish composers from the transition of the 18th to the 19th century.

Amanda Fink (mezzo-soprano), Jeremy Lyons (guitar), and William Wielgus (oboe, guest artist) perform the repertoire of two of the most important Spanish composers from the transition of the 18th to the 19th century, Martin i Soler and Fernando Sor.

Sor’s Cendrillon was frequently performed well into the 19th century, while in the late 18th century, Martin i Soler’s operas would rival those by Mozart. Both composers would joke about this rivalry as it was sealed for eternity in the supper scene of Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni, where an ensemble on stage entertains the Don by playing music from Martin i Soler’s opera Una Cosa Rara.
