WHAT PEOPLE SAID ABOUT Andres Segovia
Ira Landgarten
Segovia is truly the "Godfather of the Guitar." His classical transcriptions & brilliant performances brought the guitar to the forefront of the classical music world & ultimately led to the tremendous popularity of the guitar in the 20th century. Jazz, folk music, rock'n'roll—they all have a debt to Segovia!
Peter Neumann
There are a lot of aspiring guitarists in the world and Segovia was a great force in legitimizing the guitar into a real instrument for which music, not tablature, could be written.
