Here’s more of Celil Refik Kaya – this time playing Daniel Wolf’s arrangement of Egberto Gismonti’s Agua e Vinho on the 1969 Jose Ramirez from the Russell Cleveland Collection that Segovia owned and played from 1969 to 1980.

    Exceptional. Go Celil! Beautifully done. GSI, you should just give him that guitar and call it done. Segovia would smile.

    This gentleman has certainly found the ‘sweet spot’ on this instrument! Best recording yet of this iconic guitar. I’ve never seen fret markers on a Ramirez before. Were these fret dots added?

      Hey Michael,
      Those are just Kling On temporary fret markers, which a lot of players request for recording. Can’t remember if Celil requested them or if they were there from a previous recording, but they come right off and don’t affect the guitar in any way.

    Whose arrangement is this?

  5. Mike says:

    Is this same Ramirez Segovia used in the film “Song of the Guitar” from 1976?

  6. Mike says:

    *Is this the same

    I also own a Ramirez from 1969, and in fact I am the original and only owner of my fine instrument. My guitar has a cedar top, and straight grain Brazilian rosewood for both the back and the sides. My only surprise is what appears to be a cedar top. I was informed that Segovia preferred and always insisted on spruce tops. Comments, please?

    Great! Wonderful!
    It seems to be the arrangement of Daniel Wolff.
    On the LP “Solo”, Egberto Gismonti added the sheet music (piano) of the tunes.
    Água e Vinho (Water and Wine) have lyrics by Geraldo Carneiro, recorded on the album of the same title.
