Ferdinand Rebay: Guitar Sonata in D minor (Guitar Sonata No. 5)

Guitar Sonata in D Minor: I. Allegro

Guitar Sonata in D Minor: II. Variationen uber ein Thema von Schubert  
Guitar Sonata in D Minor: III. Scherzo. Presto  
Guitar Sonata in D Minor: IV. Finale. Alla breve  

I'm particularly fond of this one from the cycle and it's no surprise to me it was one of the first of the Rebay solo guitar sonatas to get recorded.  The two E major sonatas are as yet unrecorded.  That first one with the quasi Brahms 2nd Symphony opening movement is a real charmer, though, so somebody should tackle recording that one!
