Tempo di minuetto   Fernando Sor









This is a Tempo di Minuetto by Ferdinando Sor.  It is a sweet and easy
piece and short enough not to bore the "faint of ear".  It is in 3/4
time, '|'s  mark the quarter notes.  As the piece is in a minuet tempo.
Now, this is often interpreted as allegreto (~120).  At the time this was
written though, minuets were often played slower.  I like to play it adagio
(~70) to let the sweetness come out.  Pay attention to the dynamics.
Let the chords ring throughout.  The volume change at measure 9 is 
striking and I like to play it sul ponticello and vibrato on select
notes for added effect.

I'm pretty sure this is accurate, but let me know if you find any mistakes.
