G. E. 18

G. E. 18 Guitar Virtuosos of the Old & New World 1928-43 CD $17.00

   This CD has virtuosos who grew and flourished in different environments, those of Europe and those of the burgeoning immigrant metropoliton areas of the New World. Agustin Barrios was from Paraguay and traveled extensively all over Central & South America for decades, and in Europe as well in 1935. The Duo Spina-Baudino, led by Vicente Spina, is documented in Domingo Prat's "Diccionario de Guitarristas", 1934,( I consider this as "Prat Certified" ) as having great popularity in the theatre, on radio and on records. I think the first impression one would have of their works is that they present a very aggressive style of South American folk music. Andres Chazarreta played solos on G.E. 10 Latin American Guitar Virtuosos, whereas here, he is presented with his folk orchestra, including violins and accordion, which I can only describe as "muy sabroso", or translated from Spanish as "very spicy". Angel Iglesias, studied with the same teacher as Vicente Gomez-Quintin Esquembre-a student of the immortal Francisco Tarrega. Guillermo Gomez saw Francisco Tarrega play in Sevilla in 1897, and moved to Mexico City in 1900, where he was a major influence for 5 decades, being maestro to the first professors of the Conservatory of Music in Mexico City. Blanca Prat was born in 1925 to Carmén and Domingo Prat, & had not studied a sufficient time to be included in her father's book, Diccionario de Guitarristas published in 1934. At the age of 16, when the oldest of the non commercial recordings presented here was made, her ability could be assessed as someone who had practiced for decades. Wonderful environments work miracles.

At least two artists presented here use a guitar constructed by Santos Hernandez / Madrid: Angel Iglesias, one from 1933 and Guillermo Gomez.
