Not sure how we managed to miss this video when we were doing our Sunday Segovia picks a few months back—Torroba’s Sonatina is one of my favorite pieces! Segovia premiered the piece in 1925 and first recorded it in 1927. A second recording came in either 1949 or ’52, and a final time in 1973 (just the ‘Alegretto’). Let’s remedy that oversight with this sparkling rendition from later in Segovia’s long life.
