SEGOVIA, Andres: 1944 American Recordings

Most of these transcriptions by Segovia of pieces by Albéniz and Granados were recorded in New York in 1944. The development of new electrical recording techniques had brought with it the ability to capture a wider range of colour, beauty of tone and those nuances phrasing for which Segovia had acquired so high a reputation. These were qualities hitherto acutely discernible only to the first few rows of a concert hall; for the first time a mass audience could enjoy them too, and it was a vital factor in the rise of the guitar. It was a time, too, when the old gut strings were giving way to the more durable nylon strings. Not the least of Segovia’s achievements is his collaboration with Albert Augustine in producing a guitar string that would supersede the unreliable gut strings.
