Andrés Segovia – The Intimate Guitar

This is one of Andrés Segovia’s last recordings. I’m guessing these later records haven’t been released on CD because Segovia recorded plenty of material when he was in his prime. Though he was 83 years old when he made this record, his playing is still enjoyable. Andrés Segovia Torres, 1st Marquis of Salobreña (21 February 1893 – 2 June 1987), known as Andrés Segovia, was a virtuoso Spanish classical guitarist from Linares, Spain. He is the father of modern classical guitar and has been regarded as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Practically all 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.
