Video: Andrés Segovia – Bach Prelude from Cello Sonata No.1 BWV 1007



Andrés Segovia Torres, 1st Marquis of Salobreña (1893 – 1987) 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 were 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.

In this 1965 video, we see him performing for students in a masterclass in Santiago de Compostella, Spain.
