William Carter (guitar)
William Carter's Le Calme: Fernando Sor Late Works is an appealing collection of works by the Spanish guitar virtuoso and composer Fernando Sor, featuring some of Sor's most popular works. This collection demonstrates highly elaborate structures and techniques that pushed the boundaries of the instrument during Sor's time. These recordings employ a performance practice set out by Sor himself; Carter plays with his fingertips, creating an intimate sound. Carter's passion for the guitar enthuses his playing with a freshness and vitality that makes these compositions as appealing to today's listeners as it was for the original composition audiences.
