The Segovia Master Class in Spain (Vol. 1, 2, 3, 4)
Nov 30 2013
Andres Segovia, who single-handedly made the guitar a major concert instrument, performs and teaches gifted students in the celebrated Master Class Series filmed in Santiago de Compostella, Spain in 1965. Andres Segovia was a virtuoso Spanish classical guitarist from Linares, Spain. Regarded as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, he is seen as the grandfather of the classical guitar. Many professional classical guitarists today are students of Segovia, or students of his students.
Segovia’s contribution to the modern-romantic repertoire not only included commissions but also his own transcriptions of classical or baroque works. He is remembered for his expressive performances: his wide palette of tone, and his distinctive musical personality, phrasing and style.
