   Andres Segovia was the first guitarist to effectively transcend the limitations perceived by a skeptical public about the classical guitar. Until his time, guitar was relegated to very minor importance compared to the lofty heights maintained by piano and violin virtuosos. This release is a homage not only to the artistry of Segovia but also to that of Hermann Hauser, the violinmaker who, in 1937, built this extraordinary instrument. Texts and technical drawings by the renowned American luthier Richard E. Bruné, who has studied and photographed in detail this famous guitar. The guitar of Andres Segovia is now property of the Metropolitan Museum of New York, which has collaborated with DYNAMIC to make this tribute to the art of the great Spanish guitarist who died in 1987.
