“The Foundation” is the second solo guitar album of Ricardo Alves Pereira. It is a complete collection of works first published in 1836, known as the Introduction à l’Étude de la Guitare, Op.60, written by composer and virtuoso guitarist Fernando Sor, one of the most famous musicians of the classical and romantic era.
The Op. 60, includes 25 pieces with a progressive difficulty level rise, containing the very foundations of classical guitar technique and musicality. Along with this already ingrained richness, Ricardo Alves Pereira presents each piece with a new title to share an additional message built around the idea that a solid foundation does not only rely on intellectual tools, but also on the human experience.
