New Guitar Quartet about Fernando Sor –Kickstarter Campaign

November 6th, 2015

I am a New Jersey based guitarist and composer and have recently started a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the premier, studio recording, and video recording of my original six movement suite for guitar quartet entitled Per Fernando. The suite chronicles the life of the Spanish guitarist and composer Fernando Sor. One of the main objectives of the suite, is to expand the repertoire for guitar quartet, as most of the rep is comprised of arrangements.

Best wishes,

A.D. Silverstein
