The Cadaqués Orchestra conducted by Marriner revives two newly published symphonies by F. Sor

The scores have just been published by Tritó as part of an effort to revive the forgotten works of one of the most important 19th-century Spanish composers. Of the three symphonies Ferran SOR composed in early years of the 19th century, only the third has been performed in recent years.

The Cadaqués Orchestra with Sir Neville Marriner will soon be recording all three for an upcoming CD on the Tritó label. Previously Tritó published the scores and CD recordings of Ferran Sor's complete works for four-handed piano. Ferran Sor's symphonies Originally preserved in the musical archives of early 19th-century Madrid theatres, Symphonies No. 1, 2 and 3 have been recovered by the musicologist Josep Dolcet, who has also revised the edition published by Tritó, the same score that the Cadaqués Orchestra will be playing on this tour.

After being performed in theatres, these works were forgotten, as was much of Sor's oeuvre of songs, operas, ballets, music for piano and orchestra, etcetera.
