ANDRÉS SEGOVIA - GUITARIST

Autographed and inscribed 3.75” x 6” Carmen of Buenos Aires reverse blind stamped photograph of the legendary Spanish guitarist, Buenos Aires, 1957.

Segovia (1893-1987) was the most travelled classical guitarist in the World.  Largely self taught, his career began in Granada at the age of 16 in 1909.  He was in Madrid in 1912, The Paris Conservatoire in 1915, Barcelona in 1916 and made his first South American tour in 1919. He made his splashy Paris debut in 1924 which included a commission by Albert Roussel entitled “Segovia”.  He made his American debut in 1928 in Town Hall.  He toured the United States that year and his career was made.  He did not stop concertizing until his 93rd year in 1986!  At that time he was on his 3rd wife and had a 15 year old son!  Segovia is also remembered for his masterful arrangements of the classical repertory. In addition to Roussel, several other composers wrote works for him including; Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Moreno-Torroba, Ponce, Tansman and Villa-Lobos.  King Juan-Carlos even made the man a Marquis!

Perfect image playing his guitar!
