I have all of Eliot Fisk recordings....Nartak wrote:I am no super-big fan of Segovia, but I like what he did and I like his way of playing and the things he achieved for guitar, but...farhad wrote:Fisk
Fisk is, in my opinion, one of the worst "top guitarists" ever.
That is very much my way of thinking too. Segovia did a fantastic and difficult job in raising the profile of the modern classical guitar. Other players have since built on that work and extended in other areas. John Williams is a fantastic technician but some say his playing sounds too clinical; Bream takes more liberties with the timings of many pieces than does Williams. David Russell sounds different again. There are as many different interpretations of a piece as there are people playing it. Segovia is a part of the overall spectrum, as are we all.wollfang wrote:For me there is no "best" or something. All the players are so individual that for me it doesn't make sense to compare them. Some pieces I love from Segovia, some from Bream, some from Williams etc. etc. Some are technical masters, others have an breathtaking palette of sound colour. I love all of them.
