The Sonata for guitar, Op. 47 is a composition by Alberto Ginastera. This sonata was written in 1976 for the guitarist Carlos Barbosa-Lima (Basinski 1994, 10, 47n71). The composer subsequently revised the work twice: first in 1977–78, then again in 1981 (Schwartz-Kates 2001). It is the only original composition for guitar by Ginastera.
