Music by Bach, Llobet, Ponce, Granados, Albeniz, Scarlatti, Rameau and others

This is a re-release - in an improved version, and on our own label for the first time - one of our most important DVD titles, Andrés Segovia in Portrait.

It contains two very different films: Segovia at Los Olivos and Andrés Segovia: The Song of the Guitar. The first was shot in 1967, in what was, at that time, his newly built house, Los Olivos, on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain. The Grand Master was 75. The second was shot in Granada and the glorious Palaces of the Alhambra in 1976 when the maestro was 84.

In Segovia at Los Olivos, Segovia talks, in the relaxed atmosphere of his new home and in his inimitable Spanish way, about his objectives, his convictions, his career and his music. He plays pieces by Bach, Torroba, Llobet, Tarrega, Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Granados.

In The Song of the Guitar Segovia speaks, out of vision, except for a short statement near the beginning and he talks, not about his career and his achievements, but about his youth and the spirit in which he set out on his remarkable quest - a great artist in late maturity, reflecting on the genesis of his extraordinary journey. It is made as a poetic recollection of the atmosphere, rather than the facts, of his passionate beginnings - nearly 70 years earlier. Andrés Segovia was a poet in almost everything that he did.

In the second film he plays music by Albeniz, Granados, Scarlatti, Rameau, Sor, Ponce, Aguado, Bach, Chopin and Torroba.

Andrés Segovia had one of the longest, most successful and most unusual careers in the entire history of Western music: He gave his first recital at the age of 16 and his last at the age of 94. Fritz Kreisler, himself one of the 20th century greats, claimed that Segovia was one of the two greatest performing musicians of the 20th century. The other, according to Kreisler, being Pablo Casals.

"The master of the music doc." - Norman Lebrecht, The Evening Standard

"If you are as good as Nupen your own contribution becomes almost indiscernible, and so it was in this quite beautiful celebration of Segovia at 85."- Broadcast Magazine.
