Wonderful! Segovia will forever be my point of reference. He could play fast without being hurried, he could play slow and let the guitar sing. What a remarkable musician!

Great!!!
I have also tried to play it. It is really very impressive, such as Andres Segovia interprets the piece. His guitar playing looks so easy
Thank you

It looks like his Herman Hauser instrument from 1937, because at the start of the footage, you get a clear view of the headstock, and it has a stripe through the middle of it, so typical of Hauser guitars.

Nice piece of music played beautifully by one of the most influential musicians of the 20th Century.

Sort of off -topic, but not five minutes after watching this video, I saw a TV ad for AT&T using this piece as the background music. The images were of people on a golf course, don't know who the guitarist was.

His playing was so effortless and the music always seemed more like a fluid improvisation than someone playing notes from a piece of sheet music. His embellishments were what brought the music to life.

Wonderful rendition. Segovia in his prime. If the footage is from 1930 the guitar can't be his Hauser. Headstock looks more like his Manuel Ramirez. But great sounding anyway.
