Here’s a very rare treat – Scott Tennant and Marcelo Kayath playing ‘Divertimento’, the only guitar duo written by Andrés Segovia. The piece has not been widely performed, although the Abreu brothers recorded it in 1968 for their album “The Guitars of Sergio and Eduardo Abreu” from 1968 and one can find a few videos on YouTube these days.
GSI recently provided Segovia’s 1969 Jose Ramirez guitar, which the maestro played from1969 until 1980, to Scott Tennant for his Guitar CoOp recording of Segovia’s compositions. Kayath is the founder of Guitar CoOp in addition to having been one of the great guitarists of his generation (along with Tennant et al). So it just made sense to have the two of them take advantage of the circumstances and record Segovia’s only guitar duet together. Tennant plays the 1969 Ramirez and Kayath plays a gorgeous 1966 David Rubio.
