Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
It's a strange fact, but many of the most popular Spanish guitar pieces are actually transcriptions of piano originals. Of course, many of these actually use the piano in imitation of the guitar, and if a guitarist of Segovia's ability had been around at the turn of the century, there might have been a lot more authentic guitar music written than we now have. Segovia's particular gift, evident in the Albeniz pieces, is to make this piano music sound like guitar originals. In short, this essential CD contains many of the most famous Spanish guitar favorites in inimitable performances. --David Hurwitz

CD Reviews

Another Immortal interpretation by Maestro Andres Segovia
scarmer | 04/06/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There is only one description (Buy this CD). Take a trip to the Alhambra by listening to RECUERDOS DE LA ALHAMBRA. Andres Segovia will make you understand what feelings Francisco Tarrega was feeling when he compose Recuerdos de A. even though it was recorded in mono. 5 ***** CD."

Top Classical Guitar Recording Ever
Jonathan Jaynes | Greenville, SC | 06/28/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The standard by which all else is judged! As a classical guitarist for over 25 years, I can assure you this is the definitive classical guitar recording of the 19th century. When you combine the powerfully romantic music of arguably the most notable composer of the guitar with the recordings, both old and new, of unarguably the "Master" of the classical guitar, the result is a recording that may never be equalled. Each piece is imaginative, stirring and emotional. This is a must for anyone who enjoys not only the Spanish Guitar but simply music at its best!"
