Complete masterful recordings by Paul Henry make this indispensable to teachers and students. A demonstration recording to this renowned Segovia edition is included. (book with online audio access)
The renowned Andres Segovia edition of Twenty Studies for the Guitar has been the artistic and technical cornerstone for classical guitarists since it was first published in 1945. The essence of the edition is that Segovia selected and assembled 20 studies from Sor`s enormous output of music, based on their musical and technical qualities. He went on to add fingerings, dynamics, articulations, and in many instances, tempo indications. In effect, he imparted his own unparalleled musical and technical expertise and created a true performer`s edition.
This book/audio edition provides a new, clear engraving of the music, while retaining the timeless fingerings and editorial markings of Segovia. Opus numbers and original tempo indications have been added by the publisher. The audio provides a full performance of all 20 studies. Exquisitely interpreted and performed by Paul Henry, this recording will be an invaluable study reference, as well as a welcome addition to any guitarist`s music collection.
Guitarist Paul Henry is an active performer and recording artist based in te Chicago area and is on the faculty of the Chicago Musical College of Roosevelt University. As a soloist he has concertized throughout the United States and Europe.
