Golden Era 67 Abel Carlevaro Rio de la Plata Maestro CD $17.00
Abel Carlevaro was born in Montevideo in 1916. Originally self taught, he began
to study with Andrés Segovia in 1937 and did so until 1946. He was considered a
concert artist after his maestro presented him in 1942. This internationally known
virtuoso died in 2001.
This record was the Disk Critics Pick in 1958 in South America, and was reviewed
in The Guitar Review magazine in the same year. His style is so much like his maestro,
rather than his later style of playing.
In 1998, the 1933 Santos Hernandez used on this recording was sold at
Fine Fretted String Instruments.
There is a photo of this instrument in the book My Guitar, My World.
