Annotation Lecture DVD
Multi-media lecture (145 images, 78 RPM discs) & Guitar Recital by Randy Osborne for the South Bay Guitar Society February 15, 2002 at Santa Clara University Center of Performing Arts Recital Hall

   This is a thumbnail sketch of the book in progress "Annotations for the History of the Classical Guitar in Argentina 1822-2000" by Héctor Garcia Martinez & Randy Osborne.

   Take a journey to the "World Center of Classical Guitar Activity". Buenos Aires had 5,000 classical guitarists in 1930 & not less than 80 maestros publishing sheet music daily for the aficionados of the classical guitar.

   See how four of Francisco Tarrega's students transformed the musical landscape & developed the child prodigies to become world renowned artists.

   Randy Osborne plays the works of Fernando Sor, Matteo Carcassi, Napoleon Coste, Francisco Tarrega & Carlos Garcia Tolsa-Julian Arcas' favorite student.

   Hear very rare recordings: commercial & non-commercial, of music written by Frederic Chopin, Héctor Villa-Lobos, Federico Moreno-Torroba, Manuel de Falla, Robert Schumann & also original compositions played by: Miguel Llobet, Agustin Barrios, Andrés Chazarreta, Emilio Pujol with Matilde Cuervas (playing guitars made by Antonio de Torres), Lalyta Almiron (Agustin Barrios student), Blanca Prat & Maria Angélica Funes (who had eight works dedicated to her by Federico Moreno-Torroba).

   Watch the development of the guitar from its smaller size 19th century beginnings to its modern 20th century form.

   See how the guitar historians documented the past and preserved the priceless legacy of the classical guitar & its sheet music.

   Observe, in this 2 hour video lecture & recital, the activity of over 4 dozen guitarists & the world in which they lived.

   This video is receiving rave reviews:

   "Thanks for the video. You have done an exellent job - warmest congratulations!" (JAN-OLOF ERIKSSON, Professor of Guitar at Lulea University School of Music, Pitea, Sweden)

   "This video has extraordinary content"
(Stephen Rekas-student of Regino Sainz de la Maza, Maria Luisa Anido, Emilio Pujol & head of the classical guitar dept. at Mel Bay Publications since 1996.)

   "I watched your video last night. I really enjoyed your lecture, the pictures, music and memorabilia were marvellous. You have made me aware thru your knowledgeable lecture of fine guitarists (like Lalyta Almiron) that I have never heard of. I look forward to seeing your book published."
Maurice Summerfield 12/11/03
