Description

Segovia-The Ramirez Years is a tribute to the profound legacy of Andres Segovia and The House of Ramirez. In 1912, a youthful Segovia was given a guitar by Manuel Ramirez, thus beginning an illustrious partnership between the most famous guitarist and guitar maker in the world. Legendary British classical guitarist John Mills presents a double CD recording in which he performs a selection of celebrated works written for and transcribed by Andres Segovia. To promote an authenticity of tone, this album has been recorded on a 2012 664 mm cedar top- Ramirez 1a "Tradicional" concert guitar. Presented with an extended booklet containing interviews with Alexandre Tansman's daughter Mireille and Cecilia Rodrigo, this album captures the timeless magic and beauty of the Segovian-repertoire and Ramirez guitars.
