A new release in the recently-launched EMI Classics Icon Series, this 3-CD set is dedicated to classical guitar legend Andres Segovia. Frequently hailed as the world's greatest guitar player, Segovia was the first to lend a real sense of legitimacy to the instrument, bringing it to the concert stage and displaying the elegant, subtle, nuanced expression it was capable of. His undisputed virtuosity and charisma has won him numerous awards and acclamations (including a Grammy for Best Classical Instrumentalist).
