After the success of the IDIS 6381 title, dedicated to Segovia's 1939-1947 Bach recordings, we now publish a new thematic CD of the great Spanish guitarist, featuring a series of wonderful recordings of Baroque pieces. Here are compositions by Rameau, Purcell, Dowland, Alessandro and Domenico Scarlatti, Haydn, Froberger, De Visee and Handel, as well as some beautiful works by Johann Sebastian Bach recorded by Segovia in 1952. After a very accurate digital remastering, in many cases Segovia's Hauser guitar is restored to its wonderful sound, often degraded by recordings of poor technical quality.
