Andrés Segovia was a Spanish classical guitarist who is widely regarded as one of the most important artits of the classical guitar in the beginning and mid 20th century.

Welcome to the "Andrés Segovia" group!
Andrés Torres Segovia, 1st Marquess of Salobreña (21 February 1893–2 June 1987) was a Spanish classical guitarist born in Linares, Spain. He is widely regarded as one of the most important figures for the classical guitar in the beginning and mid 20th century.

As Segovia's career and acclaim grew he determined "five purposes" as goals for his legacy. They were outlined by Segovia in Guitar Review No 32, Fall 1969:

1. To extract the guitar from the noisy and disreputable folkloric amusements...
2. I requested the living composers not in the field of guitar to write for me. This was the second of my purposes: to create a wonderful repertoire for my instrument.
3. My third purpose was to make the guitar known by the philharmonic public of the world.
4.... to provide a unifying medium for those interested in the development of the guitar. This I did through my support of the now well known international musicological journal, the Guitar Review
5. I am still working on my fifth and maybe the last purpose, which is to place the guitar in the most important conservatories of the world for teaching the young lovers of it, and thus securing its future.

    My wife and I were fortunate to be a part of an audience to share a night watching Alirio Diaz in concert back in the mid 70's. Apart from Segovia, he remains still, a Master!

    in addition to ur description i d like to state ...a Spanish guitarist who ís - or wás - the guitar in the beginning and the mid of the 20th century. His Bach may have sounded as if mr. Johann Sebastian was a Spaniard himself but nevertheless, he put him on all the stages and in all the conservatoriums of the world, and not only Bach of course, cause indeed, as u quoted one of his goals, he created an immense repertoire for the classical guitar and of course the students - like .e.g. a John Williams, his master-student and successor - outgrow the teacher, that is normal, but where would they have studied if there hadn't been any mr. Andrés Segovia.

    Segovia has a nice sound, and the guitar would not be as it is right now if it weren't of him. He is underrated probably. Thanks for the invite.

    Segovia, maybe techinally outshined by his later pupils insofar as the techinal side, but as for warmth, grace and beauty I think Andres second to none! Am very happy his recordings have been re-released.
