Agustin Barrios CD Page

Welcome to the Agustin Barrios CD Page, here everything available at FFSI is in one place. Included are complete CDs of the virtuoso and CDs from the Golden Era catalog that contain selected cuts, which in their rarity, are not to be found on the the other CDs offered, and others that have better sound quality, due to the condition of the rare record.

G.E. 10 Latin American Guitar Virtuosos 1924-1955
   This starts with a very rare recording recently located. It is the Habanera by Agustin Barrios from 1924 which makes it a premier issue on CD. Also is the reverse which is the 1st recorded version of Romanza (Imitation of a Violoncello). Two more takes were recorded in 1928. Rico Stover, the author of
Six Silver Moonbeams The Life and Times of Agustin Barrios Mangore says there are still 10 other Barrios discs not yet found. Next we have Andres Chazarreta who was Atahualpa Yupanqui's teacher. Andres was the precursor to all the Argentine folkloric guitarists we know today. His Chacareras are very spicy. That is followed by Eduardo Falu who is to Andres Chazarreta as is Christopher Parkening to Andres Segovia. The Falu recordings were recorded live on Buenos Aires Radio Splendid between 1953-55. We have the return of Julio Martinez Oyanguren who plays several pieces by Julio Sagreras, Antonio Sinopoli and Francisco Tarrega. Anibal Ladru's Orchestra of 20 guitars was well known for over 20 years before the selections here were recorded. We finished this with two pieces by Atahualpa Yupanqui. CD $17.00

      Golden Era 60 Agustin Barrios Recently Discovered Recordings 1913-28 CD $17.00
    60.   On March 31, 1913 Alfredo Amendola's Discos Atlanta opened
      their doors for sales to the public in Buenos Aires. Their "sister"
      label Discos Artigas, in Montevideo, released the same recordings
      in the capital of Uruguay as well. There had to have been a 60 to
      90 day delay from the time of recording to the street date of the
      recordings. After being recorded in the Rio de la Plata area the
      masters were sent to Germany for pressing. The full page
      advertisement of Ay, Ay, Ay-the fourth record to be recorded and
      released by Agustin Barrios appeared on July 5, 1913 in the Caras
      y Caretas  magazine, published in Buenos Aires. The songs
      Mandolinata Napolitana and Ojos Negros are Agustin Barrios'
      second disc to be released and Isabel was recorded close to the end
      of the 1914 recording sessions.
         These three recordings are a debut in the CD format.
      These are not included in the 3 CD set
