Annotations for the History of Classical Guitar in Argentina 1822-2000, Vol 1-4
- Randy Osborne, Hector Martinez
This is a history of the classical guitar when Argentina was the 6th largest economy in the world (a position now held by California). Virtuosos from Europe went there and their students were at times the Governor of a Province or his wife. These virtuosos arrived before the advent of the radio in 1920. The love of the guitar brought the importation of the most expensive instruments fabricated in Madrid and Barcelona. Some of these virtuosos had their photographs and eulogies in the Buenos Aires magazines more than 6 years before they ever gave their first concert in the “Paris” of South America.
