The Czar's Guitars: Souvenirs of Russia

Sold Out

"The Czar's Guitars" is the duo of John Schneiderman and Oleg Timofeyev. This album is a Russian tribute to the Spanish composer Fernando Sor (1778-1839), more specifically, to his famous guitar duet Souvenir de Russie (Op. 63). The two themes Sor used for his compositions are genuine Russian folk tunes that often were chosen by Russian guitarists as themes in their variation sets. It was common in early 19th-century Russia to construct large-scale compositions based on two genuine folksongs.

Most of the tracks have at least one instrument with additional basses. On this recording when the two play duets (most tracks), Schneiderman primarily plays Russian quart guitar (7 strings on the fingerboard tuned to a C chord) and Timofeyev plays on a 12-string Russian harp guitar (7 strings tuned to a G chord + 5 additional basses).
