Have to agree with what Owl says MikFik (usually do, she's clearly not called Owl for nothing) develop a thick skin when using forums because sooner or later someone or a topic will really wind you up, often has to do with mood I find. Segovia is the most inspiring musician I have ever listened too and I include Casals, Laroccha, Heifitz, Michelangeli, Glen Gould, Arrau as being some of my favourite musician, he has a great musical sensibility, he finds nuance in nuance! I could go on, listen to him everyday and learn.MikFik wrote:Am I really reading critisisms of a man who devoted his life to the advancement of the CG by a bunch of amatuers. I must ask, What right do we have to judge Segovia. I saw him live at his last performance and yes - he had problems but he still had remarkable tone and one could still hear the devotion he always played with even though he made mistakes (who doesn't?) and he was so old he could barely get to his chair on stage. I think we should all be more carefull and more respectfull when it comes to judging the quality of others talents. If one has the extra time to write critisisms of others, maybe that time would be better spent practicing their own skill.
I've heard that taken a step further, but I also don't know whether it's true: Paganini's *main* instrument was the guitar, ie, violin was his "second fiddle". He played violin because that's where the big bucks were. Couldn't bring in the crowds with the guitar.Astra Piotr wrote: Great Paganini appriciated the guitar ( I've read, not sure if it's true though, that all in all he composed more for the guitar)
Funny you mention him, because I'm pretty sure I was talking to my luthier about llobet just the other day. I'm no sure...lol...my memory is quite bad with names and such. I've heard a lot of him...but never heard his playing...I'm quite interested.brian wrote:segovia was lucky llobet died young (no offence).
he would have given segovia a run for
him money. plus, having another tarrega student
teaching would have changed the cg landscape i'd like to believe.
and, we'd have had some nice recordings of his torres.
