Personalities | Andrés Segovia | Modern Era | Classical

Spanish guitarist

Self-taught, Segovia made his debut at the age of 15. Considering it his mission to have the guitar taken seriously, he transcribed music written for the lute and the vihuela. Contemporaries who wrote for him included Falla, Joaquín Rodrigo (1901–99) and Villa-Lobos; he played with much passion and intensity.
