Description
"There is no guitar but the Spanish guitar, and Andrés Segovia is its prophet," wrote music critic Virgil Thompson. Moving from the realm of the baroque to that of modern Spain, the most famous classical guitarist of all time performs the Prélude from J.S. Bach's Suite for Solo Cello no. 1 and the Gavotte en Rondeau from his Partita for Solo Violin no. 3, Francisco Tárrega's Recuerdos de la Alhambra, Granada (Serenata) from Isaac Albéniz's Suite española no. 1, Andaluza (no. 5 of 12 Spanish Dances) by Enrique Granados, the four-movement suite Fantasía para un gentilhombre by Joaquín Rodrigo, and more. When he began his career, Segovia once said, "The guitar was played only in cabarets, by Gypsies." Sparking a renaissance of his instrument, Segovia paved the way for Parkening, Bream, Williams, et al.

"He was born to play the guitar. He fell in love with it at first hearing and he felt he was destined to find for it its true place in the world of music."—Chicago Sun-Times
