Notes & Reviews:

In the sixth volume of “The Art of Andrés Segovia,” IDIS is featuring works by Oscar Esplá and Joan Manén, which Segovia recorded only once and which appear here for the first time on compact disc.

"If one can overlook the less-than-modern recording technology on this album, then one will be rewarded by a selection of pieces by this guitar legend. Andrés Segovia recorded these works between 1944 and 1956, and they were remastered in 2010, resulting in a fairly high-quality sound. Segovia's careful phrasing and tender precision come across in the three pavanas by Milán that open this album, and the listener is taken on an auditory tour of a variety of composers and styles... There is a quiet dignity to this interpretation that makes the listener want to drop everything and listen intently. This goes to show that a great artist can stand the test of time." -All Music Guide
