Free Notation/TAB/Audio of Italian Classic “Return to Sorrento”

Posted on Posted in Announcements, Free tabs, Stories, Tips from Mark

Mark was contracted to provide guitar solos for a 70th Anniversary (!) party in Portland in March, 2019. The husband, a  native of Italy near Naples, requested the time-honored song “Return to Sorrento” (“Torna a Surriento”) in celebration of their lives together.

Mark arranged a fingerstyle version, which is published here along with audio of Mark playing it. On YouTube you can watch Pavarotti, the Three Tenors and Dean Martin, among others, singing this famous melody. It was written in 1902 by the brothers DeCurtis. Here is a WikiPedia history of the song, listed by its Italian title “Torna a Surriento”.

  1. I first saw Mark and Greta perform at a supper club and they are fantastic. They have a beautiful repertoire of music and the audience loved it. After that, Mark performed at a special private event for my family, including our special request of Torna a Surriento, and it was perfect. He is incredibly personable as well as being very talented, which made his presence at our celebration even more special. I highly recommend these musicians.
